Design Trust partnered with Business of Design Week 2016 to run panel discussions during the Culture & The City forum, focused on themes of content building and curatorial visions, and the future of museums. Panelists included curators and directors from the Art Institute of Chicago, San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, Graham Foundation, The Design Museum in London.
These panelists and speakers included Sarah Herda (Graham Foundation for Advanced Studies in the Fine Arts), Joseph Grima (M+/Design Trust Research Fellow 2016), Zoë Ryan (The Art Institute of Chicago), Jennifer Dunlop Fletcher (SFMOMA) and Alice Black (Design Museum, London) along with HK based Eric Schuldenfrei, Marisa Yiu and Aric Chen as moderators.
With a packed audience of 800 people, discussions focused on the role of biennales, and the future of museums from a local and global perspective, and how design impacts society through its collections and community building.
