MUSEUM 2050 x HEM
2020 ANNUAL SYMPOSIUM
THE IMPERATIVES AND CHALLENGES OF COLLABORATION
DEC 5-6, 2020
Online and on site
HE ART MUSEUM (HEM), SHUNDE, GUANGDONG
For the third iteration of Museum 2050’s annual symposium, the platform looks to explore the concept of collaboration, both in its proliferation in recent partnerships amongst museums, particularly in China, and as a centerpiece of creative production. We wish to ask the fundamental question: why collaborate? What is the purpose of these cultural alliances? Whether they are between distinct institutions, artists, professionals, spaces or disciplines, what is gained when we collaborate? What is lost? How can we best foster collaboration? This year, Museum 2050 seeks to broaden the discussion beyond the realm of the Chinese context in order to investigate why museums make the decision to go beyond their walls to forge partnerships, both with other actors in the arts and those in other fields.
