Going Public: Challenges and Perspectives in the Display of Private  Collections: A Symposium Organised by the A. G. Leventis Gallery in  Association with The Courtauld Institute of Art

The Courtauld Institute of Art is delighted to co-host the “Going Public: Challenges and Perspectives in the Display of Private Collections” Symposium on Friday 17 January 2014 in association with, and organised by, the A. G. Leventis Gallery.

This half-day symposium (with registration at 1.30pm) will provide a platform for the exchange of ideas on the distinct challenges posed by the display of private collections as they make the transition from ‘private’ to ‘public’. As a prelude to the opening of the A. G. Leventis Gallery in March 2014, this symposium will discuss new perspectives and museological developments, as well as address some of the pertinent issues faced by private museums around the world.

 The symposium will bring together speakers from different fields and backgrounds focusing mostly, but not exclusively, on academia and the museum world.
