The Sensory Museum
Ellen Lupton, Senior Curator of Contemporary Design, Cooper-Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum, New York
Museums haven’t always been about looking. Early museums in Europe were devoted to walking, talking, and touching stuff. Museums today have the opportu- nity to engage multiple senses and to become inclusive platforms for sharing knowledge and experiences. Ellen will talk about the sensory challenges museums face in the age of the pandemic.
