Curios and Curios

Trump-branded merchandise, reproductions of ISIS currency, Iranian fast-food packaging, and personal objects left in the Arizona desert by Mexican refugees are among the curious artifacts on view at Mmuseumm, a thumbnail-sized Tribeca storefront that was once a freight elevator.

Founded in 2012, the self-described “modern natural history museum” presents objects that explore themes of human existence, current events, and social issues. Addressing the rapid-response collecting movement, in which contemporary objects are quickly acquired by cultural institutions, Mmuseumm essentially curates the strange complexities of the modern world.
