Kia ora tātou,
Please come along to Kathryn McCully’s studio critique next week. Tuesday 23rd October
The DIY Museum collection explores the institutional framework of the traditional museum model and its associated adherence to a structured brand of professionalism. The institution of the museum/art gallery is a façade which aims to strip away what the museum world often perceives as contextual interference from the outside world thus placing the object/artefact in isolation and repositioning it as an exhibitable art object. This displacement from the site, and lived experience of its production isolates the work from the wider social scenes that informed its creation and further reinforces a brand of museum professionalism that positions artists and communities as ‘visitors’ to whom a structured brand of knowledge should be disseminated.
