Off to London for Business

February 28, 2011 Blog 3 comments

I’ll be flying off to UK for a work trip tomorrow morning, to visit some of their leading art museums and galleries, learn how they run their institutions, and explore collaborative possibilities. There’re quite a lot that we can learn from the Brits who are world leaders in the art, science and business of running museums, art galleries and cultural institutions.

On the cards are an eclectic mix of meetings that we’ll be scheduling with both private and publicly funded mueums and art galeries. They include the world famous Tate Modern which showcases international modern and contemporary art…

…the Victoria and Albert Museum, which transformed an age-old building into an exciting and lively cultural institution showcasing an eclectic blend of art, design, lifestyle and heritage…

…and last but certainly not least, the National Gallery, London which displays art from the 13th to 19th century, including most of the Renaissance and Realist masterpieces….

I’ll try to update on my trip if possible, but if not, see you all in a few days time! 🙂

  1. Perhaps we can learn this from the national UK museums: Most are free, including the British Museum, National Gallery, Tate…etc. In Singapore, even if our national museums have to charge (despite them being funded by taxpayers), the charges should at least be 2-tiered: cheaper for locals and more expensive for foreigners.
