Designing a new MoMA

How can design support a more inclusive, experimental, and ever-changing museum?

MoMA’s 2019 expansion involved a transformative vision inside and out, and behind the scenes was a diligent Creative Team working alongside MoMA’s Exhibition Design & Production Department to rethink, refine, and evolve a place every New Yorker has a deep connection to. Join us for a conversation and celebration of “A new MoMA” with members of MoMA’s Creative Team, and learn more about how MoMA’s design teams work together across all media to collaborate with everyone from curators to chefs in pursuit of a rich visitor experience at the museum. Moderated by Perrin Drumm of Eye on Design.
