World's Smallest Contemporary Museum Journeys to L.A.
In partnership with 18th Street Arts Center: 18th Street Arts Center is an artists' residency program that provokes public dialogue through contemporary art-making.
When Nuevo Museo de Arte Contemporáneo (or NuMu, for short) was born in 2012, artists Jessica Kairé and Stefan Benchoam meant this ovoid structure to challenge visitors’ notions of what a museum should be in the 21st century. Within an intimate 6.5 by 8.2 feet, this unconventional art museum has hosted more than 15 exhibitions and numerous public programs, while only accommodating up to four people at a time. It is the world’s smallest contemporary art museum. Take a look inside this unusual art space and hear from its founders, as they recreate the museum in Guatemala and take their concept on the road to Los Angeles for Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA.
