International Touring Exhibitions Workshop

Monday 15th February 2016

10:30am to 6:00pm

Bury Art Museum

As UK regional museums are increasingly negotiating social, cultural and economic changes, museum leaders, curators and policy makers must continuously reassess their organisation’s strategy and activity.

In response to economic changes to the sector, Bury Art Museum developed a model of working in international markets. Following the success of the touring exhibition, Toward Modernity: Three Centuries of British Art, which travelled across China in 2012-13, Bury Art Museum have continued developing relationships with cultural partners in China, Japan, Taiwan and South Korea.

Bury Art Museum have proven that shared expertise and a more open, flexible approach to working internationally is a productive model for museums seeking to adapt during times of uncertainty and change.

Bury Art Museum will therefore host a one-day event focusing on the practical elements involved in touring exhibitions, with reference to Toward Modernity as a case study. Colleagues will also be invited to discuss the benefits and risks involved in touring exhibitions, and how regional museums can partner together to develop cultural products for international tour.
