The Mid-Week Museum will feature one new object per week, always on Wednesday, chosen from real museums across the world and from my own hoard (bear in mind that I am not saying for a second that I actually buy art and artifacts in any serious fashion, although all donations are welcome …). It will be my own (Tardis-like) cabinet of curiosities, subject only to my collecting whimsy and scholarly (possibly geeky) interests. Each entry will include detailed information on the object itself – fabric, origin, provenance, and so forth – as well as my reasons for including it. I also propose to discuss how and where I would display it were I the curator of a physical museum space.
It is also my hope that my museum will encourage others to comment and critique the items included. In a few months, if people are interested in participating, I plan to have temporary exhibitions with guest curators. Who would like to run their own museum for a day?
