The Lost Museum

May 1, 2014


The Jenks Society for Lost Museums is made up of students and faculty of Brown University’s Center for Public Humanities. Together they have given Brown’s nineteenth-century Museum of Natural History and Anthropology, a second life. Working with artist Mark Dion, the Society has re-collected scattered relics and remnants, transformed words into spaces, and fragments of curatorial description into spectral art. A three-part installation re-imagines the office of the museum’s founder, showcases the remaining fragments of the collection, and conjures the ghosts of artifacts once found in the museum back into existence – as reimagined by over 80 artists.
