ITP Year: 2019


As a curator at the Emperor Qin Shihuang’s Mausoleum Site Museum, Ye is responsible for curating and organising exhibitions and writing exhibition catalogues. Her daily work is to write exhibition content plans, identify cultural relics, and communicate with the other exhibition lending organisations. Her professional interests focus on exhibition planning, creativity, design and organisation.

Ye has most recently worked on a project entitled the Kingdom of Qin Shihuang, which commemorated the 40th anniversary of the founding of the Museum of Terracotta Warriors and Horses of Qin Shihuang.

At the British Museum

During her time on the International Training Programme Ye was based in the Asia Department and her partner placement was spent at Glasgow Museums.

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.  Ye worked with Asuman Alpagut (Turkey) on her Object in focus project. Their exhibition proposal was titled The Journey of the Zande Pot.

Ye’s place on the International Training Programme was generously supported by the Sino-British Fellowship Trust.
