In the nearly two weeks since the #J20 Art Strike call, dozens upon dozens of art spaces around the country have announced closures on Inauguration Day. The call for the art world to cease operations “to combat the normalization of Trumpism” was first signed by hundreds of artists, critics, and others in solidarity with nationwide calls for a general strike on Friday.
Hyperallergic has been compiling a steadily growing list of participants based in New York City; below is another running list of nationwide spaces that will shut on January 20 in direct response to the #J20 call (all closures were confirmed by email unless otherwise noted). Some of these galleries, nonprofits, and other cultural spaces will also close on Saturday, January 21, while some have announced special programming that day — so check their websites or contact them directly for further information.
