Fwd: Museums Journal - Small 2017
Regular price $15.00
How do museums respond to the urgency of the moment? In what ways can they be critically transformed to foster social justice work? Fwd: Museums, an inclusive, cross-disciplinary journal, shares interventions, experiments, and community dialogues within and outside of museums. Our contributors reexamine, critique, and challenge museums as socially responsive spaces. In our second issue, themed "small," you will find artwork, essays, poetry, and other creative forms that explore topics such as: Small alternative exhibition spaces; Marginalized identities challenging dominant structures; Impacts of small objects in and outside of museums; Unique possibilities, challenges, and contexts offered by small museums and exhibitions; Perspectives of museum workers in "small" positions; Smallness and consumability. Now it's your turn. We're looking Fwd to continuing the conversation. Edited by Sarita Hernández and Therese Quinn.
