Muse Muse or how to flip the traditional ideas of the muse

muse muse, a muse muse, muse amuse, muse muse muse

Our relationship with art has changed over time, becoming more impersonal in favor of speed and novelty. The new exhibit Muse Muse at the Czech Center explores these relationships by enlisting a handful of curators, each showcasing a transformative experience between the artist and the curator. Muse Muse takes a close look at how both the curators and the artists choose their subjects as a way of informing and expressing their identity. In that sense, they both become muses, to each other.

The show is part of an ongoing series at the Czech Center titled ‘New Bohemia Exhibition’ celebrating the 100th year anniversary of the First Republic (Republic of Czechoslovakia). Stressing the freedom of a multiplicity of voices, the inclusion of multiple curators mirrors a democratic vision centered around the theme of creating and celebrating new identities.
