"Quotes Section from Davis Museum | The Davis Lisboa Mini-Museum of Contemporary Art in Barcelona
A collaboration between CRATE and the Davis Lisboa Mini Museum of Contemporary Art, Barcelona.
The Small, Unusual and Specialist Museums Survey engages with small, unusual and specialist museums across Europe,
CRATE/Davis Museum will also host seven miniature solo exhibitions over Aug/Sep/Oct.
CRATE is currently playing host to the Davis Lisboa Mini Museum of Contemporary Art, Barcelona which is running a weekly exhibition programme.
The first in the series is Canadian artist Bill Burns who is exhibiting his work "Hou Hanru Hear Us". You can see "Hou Hanru Hear Us" at CRATE until Sunday 1st September.
The next miniature exhibition will be "Magical Crystal Garden" by Betts Robinson. Opening 6 September with Limoncello and roast chicken.
This week we launched our new research project, "The Small, Unusual and Specialist Museums Survey",
which is attempting to catalogue and connect with as many small, unusual and specalist museums in Europe as we can.
CRATE is sending out a survey via email and post asking the staff of these museums what they think about their institutions,
their collections, what they think might happen to their museums in the future and how they feel their museums contribute to the cultural lfe of their area.
This project is ongoing and perhaps impossible but our research starts now and you can see the project as it unfolds on the walls of CRATE throughout August/September.
