Xia Sheng works in the exhibitions department at Arts Exhibitions China. Her main duties include contacting and coordinating with museums and other institutions in relation to their exhibitions programme. Xia Sheng is also the contact person for ICEE and ICOM in China and is therefore also responsible for working on the projects of other museums as well. In her own time she conducts research in the cultural heritage sector.

At the British Museum
During her time on the International Training Programme in 2013, Xia Sheng was based in the Asia Department and her partner placement was spent at Glasgow Museums.

In 2013 participants are asked to prepare a project outlining an exhibition proposal based on the space and programme for the British Museum’s Asahi Shimbun Displays in Room 3.   Xia Sheng’s exhibition project proposal was entitled A Tea Bowl.

Xia Sheng’s place on the International Training Programme was generously supported by the Dresden Fellowship.
