About the Museum

Now is a moment. Now is unusual. Now is important for different reasons. Now means different things to different people. So how will you remember now? What is important to you … now?

The Museum of Today aims to give people an opportunity to become part of a collective project at this time of extreme isolation when many of our physical gathering spaces are inaccessible. 

The Museum of Today invited individuals or households to select an object from their home that has a particular resonance for them, now, and to tell its story. 

Submissions have now closed and The Curator of Now is busy getting to know all the incredible items which were submitted and piecing them together inside our digital Cabinet of Wonders.  The Exhibition will open in August.

Once this digital landscape has been created we will work with four artists, from a variety of performing and visual arts backgrounds, and allow them to make new work, responding to the collection as they wander through the virtual landscape you’ve made. Their responses will be presented online and in a physical exhibition once we are in a position to do so again.
