How is exhibition design evolving? What technological tools, immersive artistry, virtual alchemy and behind-the-scenes networks are emerging that will make future exhibitions more exhilarating than their predecessors? How can digital enable curators to increase their reach, make exhibitions more accessible, and change how audiences engage with exhibits?

This four-part series of talks looks at the process of conceiving and constructing large-scale exhibitions via the opinions of some of the most influential curators, historians, producers and designers.
