Day 259

It’s the Museum!

September 14th, 2012



The doors were locked, but a sign inside reads:

Museum

A smart man's garbage is a foolish man's fortune & vice versa.

The Museum boasts an assemblage of assorted collections from around the world.

Strange artifacts and objects removed from their narratives make up these walls. Some are overlooked, and some are overused.

Each item has its own history.

To discover the stories, please refer to the brochure below

or call 1 (888) 763 8839

and enter the object's reference number.

Welcome to the Museum.
Give 'em a call! You can read many of the reference numbers here and here. I haven't listened to all of them, but a few of my favorites so far are 7087, 7076, 7081, 7058, and, of course, the classic Senegal placard: 7048.

    cool that you found it. I went to their opening not too long ago. It’s really quite something. it’s a bit of an ironic meta-museum that a hipster filmmaking cooperative put together. More info here: http://www.redbucketfilms.com/News.html

    Seems like these kind of Duchampian pop-up museums are turning up a lot these days — mining the whole conceptual art notion of what is a museum? what is art? is this a joke? is this for real? the granddaddy of them all is the Museum of Jurassic Technology in Los Angeles – which will make your head spin.

    I went to see an exhibit of the late Screw magazine publisher & Midnight Blue host Al Goldstein.
    A great museum exhibit.
