Link List #153: Decolonizing the museum, political fashion, and the women fighting climate change in Bangladesh

This week we’ve been reading about how museums are being forced to address their colonial legacies, the designer using his collections to raise questions about race and fashion, and the non-profit organization using recycled ocean waste to raise awareness of endangered species.

  • T Magazine profiles American-Haitian designer and Pyer Moss founder Kerby Jean-Raymond whose political, narrative-rich designs are changing the way we think about fashion and race

  • Georgia O’Keeffe may be best known for her work as an artist, but apparently, she also spent a lot of time in her kitchen. In her latest column, The New Yorker writer Rachel Syme—who recently caught a glimpse of the artist’s recipe file at a Sotheby’s auction—explains that when she started to cook like the mother of American modernism, her diet became instantly healthier

  • With new museums opening in Africa, and calls for restitution increasing, The Guardian questions: Will Europe’s museums rise to the challenge of decolonization?

  • The New York Times talks to Washed Ashore, a nonprofit organization reusing garbage from the Oregon coast to create sculptures of endangered animals

  • Produced as part of a collaboration between photographer Rosie Matheson and The British Red Cross, The British Journal of Photography features a portrait series telling the stories of the Bangladeshi women who are fighting climate change in the disaster-prone city of Barishal.
