The photo-op-filled Museum of Selfies sounds like it actually might try to make good on its “museum” name. The space arrives in Glendale for a limited time this January with hands-on installations that examine the 40,000 year history, science, art and culture of self representation.
Of course, there will be plenty of Instagram-ready photo ops, with exhibits dedicated to specific shots like the “food selfie” as well as an Iron Throne made of selfie sticks.
The rest of the announced exhibits seem surprisingly in on the joke; the “high-up selfie” has less to do with flattering angles and more to do with a faux rooftop locale while the “bathroom selfie” finds visitors in “a two-sided room that lacks self-reflection.” That’s in addition to an entire section dedicated to narcissism that combines Greek mythology and statistics on the number of deaths from selfie-related accidents (We know, right? That took a turn.).
