Symposium: Migrating Culture: Global Curation between Past and Present. Royal Albert Memorial Art Museum Exter, 02.03.18
How can the curation of migrant cultures be a more dynamic and inclusive practice? What happens when objects are (re)moved from their cultural communities, or when communities move without cultural objects? How do historical practices of collecting, production and display inform the exhibition of contemporary visual culture, and how can our engagement with the contemporary illuminate our understanding of the historical? In addressing these and other questions surrounding the intersection of global cultures of craft, design, curation and migration, this international day symposium will facilitate discussion between academics, creative practitioners and museum professionals based in Exeter and beyond. The event is being supported generously by the programme in Art History and Visual Culture at the University of Exeter, RAMM and the Design History Society.

Tickets are free and include light refreshments. All members of the public are warmly invited.
