Scotland Welcomes Chinese Museum Directors

05/12/2011

Last week, Scotland played host to a top-level delegation of Chinese curators.  Organised by British Council Scotland, the nine-strong group of Chinese museum directors learned about exhibition design during their five-day visit.

The group toured the Riverside Museum of Transport and the Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum in Glasgow, as well as the newly restored National Museum of Scotland and the Royal Botanic Gardens in Edinburgh.

Jane Weeks, the British Council’s Museums and Heritage Advisor said: “The trip has been a chance for museum curators from Scotland and China to share professional expertise about exhibition design, both in iconic new buildings such as the Riverside Museum, as well as major restorations such as the NMS.  Both of these were very relevant to the Chinese delegation as they are currently redeveloping many of their top museums.

“We are very hopeful that this will result in some major exhibitions between Scotland and China. Many people in Scotland are fascinated by the beautiful historic costumes, ceramics and archaeological materials that are found in abundance in China.  But equally, there’s a great curiosity in China about life in the UK.”

ClickNetherfield were asked – along with Philip Long, Director of the new V&A Dundee – to present to the Chinese delegation at the Botanic Gardens.  Our Technical Director, Mike Chaplin presented on our behalf on the topic of museum showcase design / general trends in museum design.

Our operation in China is now well under-way, and we are steadily winning more projects there.

We are confident that this visit will help strengthen already existing links between Scotland and China, particularly within the museum and heritage community.
