A Collaborative Event with Flanders Art Institute and Delfina Foundation
This study day will investigate the historic relationship between the UK and the Low Countries, drawing from the Contemporary Art Society’s past curatorial research trips to Belgium (2016) and Holland (2015). Curators from museums on both sides of the North Sea, including Norwich Castle Museum and M HKA in Antwerp, will discuss collecting with an international focus and the similarities and differences of collections policies between countries.
This is a rare opportunity to develop international projects and collaborations and representatives from Art Flanders and the Dutch Embassy will be present to reply to any questions regarding funding opportunities.
