Krannert Art Museum Exhibitions Guide Archive: Accumulations

This guide assembles research guides for past Krannert Art Museum shows.

Accumulations

As collecting institutions, museums were born from the imperial charge to amass objects from subjugated worlds. Today this fraught history can be overshadowed by our attachment to the mission of keeping artworks safe in perpetuity for the public good. Thus acts of accumulation are always accompanied by acts of forgetting, revision, and recollection.
