The designers behind the V&A Dundee, Bolton Museum’s new Egyptology gallery and the Design Museum’s Ferrari: Under the Skin exhibition will share their approaches to exhibition making at a one-day conference on 26 April.

Exhibitionists: Designing Great Exhibitions takes place at the Victoria and Albert Museum’s (V&A) Sackler Centre in London and features an exciting line-up of speakers.

During the morning, delegates will hear from Sam Bompas, the co-founder of multi-sensory design agency Bompas & Parr, on how experience design can transform the museum experience.

Adam Zombory-Moldovan, the director of ZMMA Architects, and Joanna Norman, the lead curator for the Scottish Design Galleries at the V&A Museum of Design Dundee, will discuss the role that design plays in the new museum, which is due to open in September.

Bolton Museum’s new Egyptology galleries, also due to open in September, will also feature in the programme, with Samantha Elliott, the Crescent and collections manager at Bolton Museum, and Nichola Ward, the head of creative at Leach Studio, discussing their unique approach to design.

There will be presentations in the afternoon from creative consultant Zoe Partington on how a more inclusive approach to design can help museums remove access barriers, and from Elise Naish, the head of heritage and collections at Luton Culture, on integrating digital in a historic house.

Kate Bailey, a senior curator and producer at the V&A, will discuss the role of the concept and brief processes in exhibition making, and Asha McLoughlin, an interpretation editor at the V&A, will talk about the delivery of the exhibition narrative through the graphic design.

Delegates will also have the chance to hear from internationally-renown designer Marina Willer, a partner at Pentagram, who will discuss her work for the Design Museum’s Ferrari exhibition and the Barbican’s Mangasia: Wonderlands of Asian Comics exhibition.

Nathaniel Hepburn, the director and chief executive of the Charleston Trust in Sussex, will chair the event.

“This seminar is for anyone involved in the design of temporary and permanent exhibitions who wants to hear the latest thinking from inspirational designers,” said Simon Stephens, the head of publications and events at the Museums Association (MA).

“Exhibitionists is a follow-up event to the MA’s sold-out 2017 conference Grand Designs: New Thinking on Exhibition Design, so we would recommend people book their places early to avoid disappointment,” he added.
