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 hybrid model of merging the best of British practice with the more economically sustainable elements of wider EU practice. Following the success of touring exhibition, Towards Modernity: Three Centuries of British Art, which travelled across China in 2012-13, Bury Art Museum have continued developing groundbreaking partnerships with UK and Chinese museums.
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. Director of Bury Art Museum, Tony Trehy will recount this experience working across China, reflect on differences in approach between Chinese and British museums and expand on partnerships and developments in subsequent years.
