Ask the Expert: working with artists

Put your questions to Tristram Aver from Nottingham Castle Museum and Art Gallery
How can museums cultivate creative and mutually-beneficial relationships with artists? What processes need to be followed during the commissioning process? And what information needs to be included in contracts?

Whatever your question about working with artists, Museum Practice is here to help with its monthly Ask the Expert feature.

Tristram Aver, the exhibitions officer at Nottingham Castle Museum and Art Gallery, will be taking your questions on the subject of working with artists.

This follows successful collaborations between Nottingham Castle and various local, national and international artists. The organisations also hosts Nottingham Castle Open, an annual exhibition of work by artists based in the Midlands.

Email your questions to practice@museumsassociation.org or share them in the comment box below by 26 September. The answers will be published on 15 October.
