Museums serve the public through the preservation of art as emblematic of the belief that there are things from the past that are worth saving for the future.
Engaged with that act of saving, there is supposed to be a research arm dedicated to knowledge production. Ideally, museums should ask:
What kind of knowledge do art objects have?
How is knowledge activated by an encounter with that object?
What kinds of knowledge are needed in any given moment?

just had an interview for an intern position at an art museum in my hometown that I really hope I get (ahhh) so this mini moodboard is me manifesting…
I won’t find out for another two weeks so the next time I post, hopefully it’s good news!
I never knew I wanted to work in museums until it hit me a few months ago and I was like, of course you do! galleries raised you! they are your special place, how could you think of anything else?!
We went out for a walk at dawn so as not to return, those who lay in their beds and slept until the next morning were never us.
