At the British Museum

During her time on the International Training Programme Ketevan was based in the Department of Coins and Medals and her partner placement was spent at Manchester Art Gallery, Manchester Museum and Whitworth Art Gallery.

In 2019 participants were asked to plan and propose a temporary exhibition around an object from the Museum’s collection working within the theme of journeys. Ketevan worked with Ciprian-Mircea Dobra (Romania) on her Object in focus project. Their exhibition proposal was titled The Never-Ending Journey of Life.

Ketevan’s place on the International Training Programme was generously supported by the Marie-Louise von Motesiczky Charitable Trust.
