DES185: Exhibition Design (4)
Fall 2015, Winter 2016

Exhibition Design is primarily concerned with how to communicate an object led narrative to an audience in an engaging manner. Interpretive strategies using spatial planning, furniture, lighting, images, typography, activities, audio, film and interactive media help to embellish the story. Content is relayed through multiple levels (intellectually as well as participatory) and applied to a variety of environments from museums to trade show exhibits. Teamwork is crucial in the exhibition design process and includes curators, writers, educators and technical specialists.
