BRONZE ROYAL ACADEMY OF ARTS, LONDON

A celebration of bronze on a scale never attempted before

Bronze brought together some of the world’s finest bronzes from the past 5,000 years, in the first cross-cultural exhibition celebrating the diversity of works in this unique medium.

The exhibition at the Royal Academy of Arts in London featured over 150 bronzes from Asia, Africa and Europe, from major institutions in 17 countries, including bronzes that had never been loaned before due to their fragility and importance.

Almost up to the start of the exhibition, Momart was involved with negotiations up to government level on which pieces would be included.

With our technical expertise in handling large and challenging objects, Momart worked with the Royal Academy as UK transport coordinating agent, including installation and deinstallation of a number of object. We managed the whole project, which scope ranged from developing and executing operational plans to ensure minimal disruption due to the Paralympic Games taking place at that time in London, to working with couriers, 21 local agents, armed police and security guards.
