About the Event

E-J Scott is a queer cultural curator whose practice embraces collecting as a form of

museological direct action. By deconstructing the museum process of acquiring and

describing objects, E-J equips communities who have historically been erased or

misrepresented in heritage spaces to become the curators of their own stories within them.

This process is designed to queer the museum, rather than museum-ing what’s queer, by

disrupting the hierarchy of institutionalised curatorial expertise that has contributed to the

elitist authority embedded in Anglo-American history telling.

E-J’s work includes founding the Museum of Transology, the world’s largest collection of

material culture surrounding trans lives, putting the pub back into public history for

Duckie.co.uk. and curating Tate’s annual Queer & Now festival. He is currently queering the

collections at Brighton Museum & Art Gallery, Ditchling Museum of Arts + Crafts and

Hastings Museum & Art Gallery. museumoftransology.com
