Issue number two of this journal from the Museums and Exhibition Studies Program at University of Illinois at Chicago asks, on the back cover: "How do museums respond to the urgency of the moment? In what ways can they be critically transformed to foster social justice work?" Well, damn if that isn't one of the key questions right now for this field of work! For this "small" themed issue (which isn't so small at all), Fwd presents artworks, essays, poetry, and other creative forms that explore topics such as, in their words:

* Small alternative exhibition spaces

• Marginalized identities challenging dominant structures

• Impacts of small objects in and outside of museums

• Unique possibilities, challenges, and contexts offered by small museums and exhibitions

• Perspectives of museum workers in "small" positions

• Smallness and consumability
