Chinese researcher seeking to make connections with UK university museums

A Chinese researcher is keen to make connections with UK university museums who are interested in collaborating with a Chinese university museum.  Please see more information below.

My name is Mu Ruifeng, I am doing my postdoctoral research in UK as a Visiting Scholar of V&A. In China, I am in the post-doctoral program in Tsinghua University Art Museum.

My university is by far the largest university museum in China, although it's a newly opened museum, it has a long history. We own more than 13,000 pieces of collections, covering six major categories, namely, painting and calligraphy, embroidery, porcelain, furniture, bronze ware and comprehensive artwork.

We loaned 60 original manuscripts of Leonardo da Vinci from the Codex Atlanticus, some models and 1 oil painting to hold the exhibition Dialogue with Leonardo da Vinci / The 4th Art & Science International Exhibition. We have also held an exhibition on Markus Lüpertz (b. 1941) , one of the key figures in German Neo-Expressionism. We cooperated with Musée d'art moderne et contemporain de Saint-étienne Métropole and hold the exhibition From Monet to Soulages: Paths of Modern Western Painting1800-1980) presenting 51 paintings with various genres from collections of the Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art of Saint-Etienne Métropole. Otherwise, we had our own permanent collections exhibitions and special exhibitions on artist personal exhibitions of Chinese contemporary art.
