A Museum for Future Fossils is a series of events and projects, including exhibitions, a workshop, and a graduate summer school, bringing together a key group of people working on museums, contemporary art, the Anthropocene, and climate change. Since June 1, graduate students participating in the MFFF project have been using the Artlab as a laboratory and meeting place. This exhibition is a living archive of the discussions and learning taking place as they consider the transnational implications of ecological crises – and art worlds – that cross borders and Indigenous lands and waters.
