Going Public: International Art Collectors in Sheffield

11 October 2016

In order to explore how public galleries and philanthropists can better develop meaningful, mutually beneficial relationships, Museums Sheffield led a project and subsequent report, ‘Going Public: International Art Collectors in Sheffield’. Launched in 2015, the project brought work from some of Europe’s finest private collections of contemporary and 20th century art to Sheffield in a citywide series of exhibitions, accompanied by a major summit which asked the question ‘How can public art institutions unlock the potential of philanthropy?’

Authored by Louisa Buck, Contemporary Art Columnist for The Art Newspaper, The Going Public Report presents the conclusions from the Going Public summit. The report brings together views from leading museum directors, philanthropists and industry experts to create a new consensus on the opportunities for collaboration which could help protect the future of regional museums and galleries.
