As I stated previously, I’m very disappointed in the poor judgment that the Design Museum in London displayed by renting their space to a company which manufactures military arms while simultaneously hosting an art show of activist images. I stand with those artists behind the #NopeToArms protest and demand for removal of our works featured in the museum in opposition of this decision. Supporting the arms industry in any way, overt, subtle or private, is not acceptable and disturbingly contrary to my values. I hope, pun intended, that this illuminates the conversation and puts more responsibility on behalf of institutions globally to use their moral compass when accepting private funding. – Shepard
