The director of the MoCA Cleveland resigns after having cancelled a show on police brutality


Jill Snyder, who has been director of the Museum of Contemporary Art Cleveland for 23 years, resigned Friday, said the museum in a press release, “to begin a transition to a new leadership” for the institution of contemporary art. His departure comes nearly two weeks after Mrs. Snyder has presented a public apology to an artist to have cancelled his exhibition on the murders by the police of boys and men, blacks and latinos.

In the statement announcing her resignation, Ms. Snyder has not made reference to the apology, saying: “I made this decision with the understanding that the world as a whole, and our museum in particular, is in a powerful moment of disruption and opportunity. “She added: “I take this as an opportunity to advance the movement for change that is sweeping our culture.”
