80ML

May 3 to December 31, 2021

Museum London opened its doors 80 years ago. To mark this anniversary, the Museum is launching an online exhibition. 80ML pairs 80 objects from the permanent collection--40 works of art and 40 historical artifacts--with written responses from 80 Londoners, who bring a fresh perspective to the Museum’s artistic and historical holdings. 

Traditionally, museum anniversary exhibitions highlight the most prominent and popular objects from the collection. 80ML is a little different. Museum London, working in consultation with the community, began by reaching out to 80 people who reflect our city’s diverse population. The exhibition’s contents were then chosen with these people in mind, each matching the knowledge, commitments, experience, and interests of a respondent. 

People will still see some of Museum London’s most familiar and best loved artworks and objects--whether paintings by Paul Peel and Greg Curnoe, an 1830s ball and chain from the Middlesex County Jail, or a 1930s Spartan Radio. However, online visitors will have an opportunity to gain a new, unexpected, and fuller understanding of these objects through the knowledgeable insights and creative interpretations of community members.
