Lecture

The Museum of Longing and Failure (MOLAF) is a collecting entity established in 2010 by Canadian artists Andrew Taggart and Chloe Lewis. The MOLAF takes shape through a sustained conversation with living artists and collectives, whose contributed sculptural works form the basis of ongoing installations, interventions, publications, and, more recently, the production of new forms. To date, the MOLAF has presented the work of over eighty artists and has appeared both in Canada and abroad, in cities such as Berlin, Krakow, Dawson City, New York and Copenhagen.

In conjunction with the exhibition MOLAF XX, Lewis & Taggart will present a talk on the project's eight-year trajectory, followed by a discussion.
