PAA-E Annual Meeting 2023 : National versus local museums

11-12 December 2023, Musée des Beaux-Arts de Chartres, France

The annual PAA-E meeting entitled National versus local museums will be held at the Musée des Beaux-Arts (MBA) of Chartres, France from 11 until 12 December 2023. The museum holds paintings, sculptures, art objects and ethnographic collections from the 13th to the 20th century, including an important Pacific collection of objects, drawings and photographs. Attendants to the meeting will have the opportunity to see these collections, but also to hear about some of the renovation plans for displaying the collections.

As the Musée des Beaux-Arts of Chartres has diverse collections that are not only focused on the Pacific, the meeting will be an opportunity to rethink the role of smaller museums in relation to the larger national museums in finding creative ways to work with their Pacific collections. How do local museums inform and feed the national debates around representation, collaboration and repatriation?
