Soup-Slinging Syrup Showdowns - Why Galleries and Museums Are Increasingly
Sites of Climate Protests

After a series of fluids from soup to syrup have been thrown at famous
paintings in art galleries around the world, galleries and museums are
questioning why they are increasingly sites of climate protests. While much
of the broader sectoral response has been to declare that cultural
institutions  must be “seen as allies” and to decry these attacks on
“irreplaceable objects,” these acts of protest require us to look beyond
our initial shock and grapple with how many view our institutions.

sustainable future.
