Curator Files Discrimination Lawsuit after MoMA PS1 Rescinded Its Job Offer

Nikki Columbus, the former executive editor of Parkett magazine, has filed a lawsuit against MoMA PS1 in Queens, New York, after the institution recruited her for a curatorial position and then allegedly rescinded its offer after learning that she recently had a child. According to Columbus’s legal representation, the New York–based firm Emery Celli Brinckerhoff & Abady LLP, the museum’s actions are in violation of the city’s laws on caregivers, pregnancy, and women’s rights.
