Partner institutions


Sir John Soane Museum, UK
The Museum, which opened after the death of famous English architect Sir John Soane (1753-1837), reflects its founder’s artistic interests:  it includes his unique collection of architectural drawings, but also his collection of 18th-century antiques, plasters, and paintings by famous artists such as Hogarth and Canaletto.  Soane designed his house as a setting for his artistic treasures, and his breath-taking layout combines romantic and classical elements.

The Wallace Collection, UK  

Bequeathed to the state and made available to the public in 1900, the Wallace Collection is the largest collection of art ever amassed by a single family.  The collection of 18th century French furniture and paintings, as well as Sèvres porcelain, is the largest of its kind outside of France.  But the museum also possesses a remarkable collection of 17th century paintings, important ceramic pieces, and a superb armory.

Whitechapel Gallery, UK
Founded in 1901 with the aim of exhibiting contemporary art in the poor neighborhoods of London’s East End, the Whitechapel Gallery is now recognized as one of the world’s leading contemporary art galleries, exhibiting bold new artworks.  The museum is a symbol of the revival of the East End, which in the past few years has become the dynamic center of the English contemporary art scene.
