Queering the Museum Mission

This blog aims is to identify the ways museums address the Queer identity and to better understand the current state of queer in the museum. The future goal of this blog is create an active format for bring the Queer identity from the footnotes of museum collections, exhibitions into their holistic consciousness. It’s an experiment in community building within the museum.

The content will include discussion of current Queer focused exhibitions, museum programs and criticism. Additionally, this blog will follow the Queering the Museum symposium series I am organizing at the University of Washington. I hope readers will contribute content, participate in conversations and actively think about how and why museums are Queering their collections, content and exhibits.

Enjoy!
