New cultures of curating: The emergence of issues-based museology
12:00-13:30, Tuesday 26 November 2019
Room G7, Pavilion Parade, University of Brighton*
Recent years have seen a growth in the development of curatorial initiatives driven by issue-related or identity-based concerns. What motivates the development of these initiatives? What are the opportunities and threats faced by these new museological interventions and what might they reveal about the shortcomings of the established museum sector?
Our three speakers are Emily Miller, Head of Learning and Partnerships at the Migration Museum (a new museum initiative dedicated to “telling stories of movement to and from Britain in fresh and engaging ways”); Lucy Malone, Co-Founder and Curator of the Museum of Ordinary People (a “pop-up museum presenting collections created by and about ordinary people”) and E-J Scott, Founder and Curator of The Museum of Transology, the largest collection of trans-related objects in the UK. Each speaker will give an individual presentation before a wider panel discussion.
All welcome.
