The Museum of Longing and Failure (MOLAF) is a collecting entity with a focus on small-scale object-based works. The MOLAF takes shape through a sustained conversation with living artists and collectives, whose contributed sculptures form the basis of ongoing installations, interventions, publications, and the production of new works by the MOLAF itself. Seeking to raise questions pertaining to a fluidity between institution, author, and artwork, the MOLAF strives to continually interrogate its own structure, identity, and capacity to both support its collection and generate new working methodologies.
The MOLAF is founded and operated by Andrew Taggart + Chloe Lewis.
