Black Tie International:
The Nanjing Museum and the American Federation of Arts








The Nanjing Museum and the American Federation of Arts (AFA) are pleased to announce their co-presentation of Meeting the West: Exhibitions from American Museums, an exhibition showcase and forum, which will provide vital opportunities for institutions in the U.S. and China to build cultural dialogue, bridge experiences, and create pathways for exhibition partnerships between Chinese and American museums.

The program offers two integrated components: an Expo of U.S. museum exhibition proposals that could travel throughout China, and a Forum for museum leaders from both countries to discuss opportunities and challenges around traveling exhibitions between China and the U.S.

“Meeting the West has come to fruition through a close, year-long partnership between the AFA and the Nanjing Museum. We firmly believe that fostering an open dialogue, cultivating partnerships, and introducing new exhibition possibilities to Chinese and American museums will be of great benefit to all who take part, enriching the international programming in the already vibrant communities surrounding participating institutions,” said AFA director Pauline Willis.

Mr. Gong Liang, director of the Nanjing Museum, said: “What we will do here is more than exchange exhibitions. It will also include exchanges on building museums, the practice of museum management, and cultural interchanges and assimilation.  We hope the  promotion of exhibitions and dialogues with American colleagues will advance our understanding of the museum field, benefit the development of museums in both countries, and enhance mutual understanding and exchanges between China and other cultures.”

In Nanjing, thirty-seven directors and senior staff from over twenty leading U.S. museums, foundations, and arts organizations will be meeting counterparts from Chinese institutions, with a focus on the practical needs and demands of implementing Chinese-American cultural exchange. The two-day Forum, which will coincide with the opening of the Exhibition Expo, will feature panel presentations by specialists in the field and discussions on topics including successful collaborations, finance, and audience engagement, as well as selecting and shipping objects. Additionally, U.S. participants will be invited to continue this dialogue about exhibition exchange during a two-day tour of museums and heritage sites in Wuxi and Suzhou, Jiangsu Province.

For the Exhibition Expo, twenty-five participating U.S. museums will provide information on their institutions and can present up to three exhibitions that may be made available to travel to China. Held at the Nanjing Museum, the Expo will open on November 18, 2014, and remain on view for approximately one month. Well over one hundred Chinese museum professionals will visit the Expo, and all U.S. exhibition presentations will also be presented through a catalogue to be published and distributed by the Nanjing Museum.

Meeting the West: Exhibitions from American Museums is supported by the E. Rhodes and Leona B. Carpenter Foundation, Mrs. Donald M. Cox, and the Terra Foundation for American Art.
