The New Museum in New York is holding an exhibition “The Keeper” which dedicated to the act of preserving objects, artworks, and images, and to the passions that inspire this undertaking.

A reflection on the impulse to save both the most precious and the apparently valueless, it brings together a variety of imaginary museums, personal collections, and unusual assemblages, revealing the devotion with which artists, collectors, scholars, and hoarders have created sanctuaries for endangered images and artifacts.

In surveying varied techniques of display, the exhibition also reflects on the function and responsibility of museums within multiple economies of desire. As the specter of iconoclasm continues to resurface in current events, “The Keeper” presents the complex lives of images and objects that have escaped a tragic end.
