Each year, students and staff from the University bring their talents to the Tate Exchange to deliver a week of free workshops and activities, following a specific theme.
Benefit from our global creative connections and access to our high-profile alumni network of practising artists and curators.
The Wuhan Exchange
A group of eight undergraduate and postgraduate students from Reading School of Art joined eight students from the University of Wuhan to participate in a three-part exchange programme.
Together, they enjoyed a varied and stimulating programme of workshops and activities, including cultural visits and social activities in both the UK and in Wuhan, China. During a remote working period, four mixed project groups collaborated to develop a series of exhibition proposals together.
The programme culminated in the students developing a joint exhibition displayed at the Times Art Center in Wuhan.
