Through this month with Treggiari and Heilweil, we have been inspired to explore the function of a museum. Their month-long project entitled My Museum investigates the roles of both the art institution and the visitors that filter through it. The artists aim to redefine the boundaries of a museum through their interactions with visitors. This substantial participation of museum-goers will form the basis of the installation with the end result being an archive of community experiences forged over the month.
In correspondence with their artistic methods and residency, we’d like to invite you to think about your favorite museum. What made the visit so memorable? Was it the atmosphere of the gallery space, or the splendor of viewing a favorite art piece for the first time? As you consider your answer, tell us about your experience in the comment section below.
