Fred Wilson

By commenting on the place of African Americans within US museums – and his projects often position them as gallery attendants or working as cleaners, rather than as customers and spectators – Wilson has caused many museum directors and curators to re-think their programs and their attitudes. He has also commented on the content of Colonial paintings and their depictions of both slavery and domestic interiors. For one influential project he dressed as a museum attendant himself and ‘lived’ in the gallery for a week – approaching white middle class couples and interpreting the paintings for them.
