Museums and controversial exhibitions – Add to the discussion!

museopunk

I am loving the Museopunk forum! I just opened up the following question for discussion, and encourage you to add to the conversation and join Museopunk if you have not had the chance yet!

For those who have worked or currently work in the museum field, have you had any dealings with exhibitions that turned out to be controversial, or planned exhibitions that addressed contentious topics? What did the museum do to address concerns from the public and funders, and did they put extra measures in place to encourage constructive dialogue about the topic or the art?
