The Museum of Longing and Failure is a collecting entity that seeks to reveal the visual terrain of its thematic concern. Its form takes shape through a sustained conversation with living artists and collectives, whose contributed sculptural works form the basis of ongoing installations and interventions. Through presentation, production, and publishing, the MOLAF strives to constantly question its own structure, identity, and capacity to both support its collection and generate new forms.
The MOLAF is founded and operated by Andrew Taggart & Chloe Lewis.
