Description

The Museum Took a Few Minutes to Collect Itself is a new book of short stories by Joseph del Pesco. Based in Baltimore, del Pesco is a curator, writer and publisher and is the International Director of KADIST.

The Museum Took a Few Minutes to Collect Itself was published by Art Metropole as part of The Islands, an arts-writing residency conceived and organized by Art Metropole and Fogo Island Arts. Del Pesco was the first resident of The Islands, which takes place between Fogo Island, Newfoundland, and Toronto Island, Ontario. Drawn from these and the author’s further travels, this constellation of micro-essays document a search for a new way of writing that extends beyond the summary, the review and the catalogue essay.
