Museum of the Year

Level 4 BA Fine Art students at Liverpool John Moores University have collectively reimagined the idea of the museum by founding and creating their own – links to these are below. These new organisations pose questions about the impulses that sit behind the act of collecting, as well as inquire into the reasons for preserving and conserving objects. 

The project, known as The Museum of The Year, arises out of a series of sessions led by Adam Carr and Rory Macbeth, and supported by the BA Fine Art team, in which museum culture and the history and practice of exhibition-making were investigated. The sessions enabled students an insight into the history and context of art and exhibition-making and through the lens of collecting, looked at how gathering and categorising objects can traverse both practices. One of the primary aims was to stimulate and empower students’ creativity at a time when museums and galleries are closed, particularly in the UK. 

From the Museum of Bad Looks to the Museum of Nan's Unnecessary Necessary Nicknacks, the students have brought together collections of artworks, objects and artefacts with interventions and guest contributions. Unlike other museums, those part of The Museum of The Year are free to access and remain open 24/7.
