Grounded in history and growing anew The M is uniquely positioned with one foot deep in St. Paul history and one foot firmly placed in the future of Minnesota art organizations. Where are museums headed? What are museums becoming? Who makes up a museum?
With those questions in mind, the M recognizes that art is a tool for connection, and is dedicated to shining a light on art and artists that represent diverse perspectives, identities, and experiences so that everyone can see themselves here at the M.
Curatorial Assistant Mia Laufer offers a deeper look into creative process and historical research informing the M's installation by L.A.-based artist Sherin Guirguis.
