Sexual Harassment Allegations Surface Across The Pond

January 14, 2018


An article in today’s Guardian, by Ben Quinn and Cristina Ruiz, covers the sexual harassment allegations against one of Britain’s most important contemporary art dealers … 78 year old Anthony d’Offay.  According to the report, the ‘inappropriate behavior’ began in 1997 and D’Offay said of the allegations by the three women: “I am appalled these allegations are being levelled against me and I categorically deny the claims being made.” He added. “I am completely unaware of any police investigation. If there is one, then police time is being wasted.” He also said: “I conceived the idea for Artist Rooms some 15 years ago. It has been a wonderful success. However, having been directly involved for that length of time and also reaching 78 years old, I decided in December it was time to retire as ex-officio curator.”
