Curious about how we put together M+? The 'Open Up M+' series invites you to explore the different aspects of the museum—from the building as an architectural landmark to the collaborative effort from across teams in the making of our exhibitions.

In this talk, M+ Deputy Director, Curatorial, and Chief Curator Doryun Chong and architect Mai Komuro from Kompas Architecture will converse with M+ Lead Curator of Learning and Interpretation Keri Ryan. The trio will go behind the scenes and discuss how design and architecture play a vital role in the conceptualization of The Dream of the Museum, and how curators and designers respond to this unique space in the M+ building.

Simultaneous interpretation in Cantonese will be available. Click on ‘Register’ to sign up for this hybrid event taking place at the Forum, M+ or to receive the link and join via Zoom.
