ITP 2016 Exhibition Proposals

ITP 2016 Exhibition Proposals

Congratulations to all of the 2016 fellows who worked hard on their exhibition proposals at the British Museum this summer.

Proposals were presented on the penultimate night of the ITP Summer Programme. It was a wonderful evening, attended by British Museum staff, UK partner staff and sponsors, and was enjoyed by all.

Below are the names of each of the fellows and their exhibition proposal titles, with links to the proposals themselves. Each of these proposals were accompanied by an object; many were also presented with music, videos, a diorama, and even incense to taste.

Please enjoy taking a look at presentations below…
