Museum Remix

Museum Remix

A temporary display of new installations created and co-curated by Luis Jimenez, Lizzie Knott, Suzy Rickard, Jack Silvester and Lily Stancliffe.

From Tuesday 28 January 2020
In association with LGBTQ+ History Month

 

Museum Remix is a series of installations in the Museum of Classical Archaeology about labels and why they matter. The labels we give to people, and the categories we try to put them in. The labels we proudly choose ourselves, and the labels we give to objects. The histories they include, and what they hide.

 

The original Museum Remix 2019 exhibition
For one night only: Museum Remix on display at the Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology, September 25 2019

 

In September 2019, a team of 25 Museum activists gathered together to radically rethink how the University of Cambridge Museums engage with LGBTQ+ histories. They worked across the Fitzwilliam Museum, the Polar Museum, the Museum of Zoology, the Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology - and here, with us, at the Museum of Classical Archaeology.

The product of this intense two days was an exhibition about love and sex, identity and censorship. But the exhibition only lasted for one day. Now, we bring the works created into the Cast Gallery, to enter into dialogue with the collection and raise pressing questions about the narratives on display - and those not currently on display.

On Display

Bay B: The Sleeping Hermaphrodite. Why is there no hermaphrodite in the Museum of Classical Archaeology's collection?

Bay J: Caracalla and Elagabalus. Can ancient gossip and scandal be a foundation for writing a queer history of non-binary identity?

Bridging Binaries LGTBQ+ Tours

The foundation for the installations created by the Remix Team draws on the work of the volunteer tour guides who deliver Bridging Binaries LGTBQ+ tours in the Museum of Classical Archaeology. Tours run on select Saturday mornings during University term-time.
