2017

Yasmin Nurming-Por
Winner of the 2017 Middlebrook Prize for the project My curiosities are not your curios
Announcement

My curiosities are not your curios examines what it means to collect objects through the work of artists for whom collecting is a creative practice. Nurming-Por has selected contemporary artists from across North America whose “collections” address the politics of display, exploring how these systems can also be used to present alternative narratives.
