In 2010, the Smithsonian's National Portrait Gallery in Washington, DC, presented Hide/Seek: Difference and Desire in American Portraiture, the first major museum exhibition to focus on sexual difference in the making of modern American portraiture. The exhibition, which has been praised for its groundbreaking scholarship, drew international attention when the museum, under pressure from a right-wing religious group and conservative politicians, removed a video in the exhibition by David Wojnarowicz.

Learn more about the exhibition and the controversy with a lecture by one of the curators of the exhibition, Jonathan D. Katz, followed by a panel discussion.
