// Strategy for Institutions

We ask ourselves the same questions all the time in order to best serve our clients: What is a sustainable model for contemporary art institutions in the 21st Century? Which established values and practices should be retained and which must evolve? How do we square the needs of the local with the demands of globalization? What impact does digital culture have on collecting? How can public and private sectors collaborate? We have seen a burgeoning expansion of public and private art museums in the Contemporary. As well as assisting existing organisations, Montabonel & Partners provide planning, strategic positioning and access for the complex task of establishing a public or private institution, tailoring their specialist advisory to each individual case.

These include:

  • SWOT/SMART analysis of the organisation to evaluate opportunities and challenges
  • Branding consultancy to enhance visibility and reception by audiences and peers.
  • Network and alliance expansion to enhance relations within the art eco-system.
  • Board and Legacy Development to cement management structures and practices with a view to long-term stability.
  • Collection building, management and policy to ensure a cohesive acquisition strategy combined with best-practice conservation and archiving through industry standard documents and templates.
