Today I felt trendy – which is an unusual feeling for a director of an 18th century Mayfair museum but I had a meeting with exhibition designer, project manager and graphic designer in a oh so cool café in Shoreditch. It was full of super funky types busily connecting digitally and in person. Coffee was great and the hip urban feel was very JH! So it seemed an inspirational place to be discussing ideas around the exhibition itself. I reported back on my recent trip to Seattle to visit the Experience Music Project museum housed in a Frank Gehry building (more of that in later posts) and how amazing it was. Arguably anything in a Gehry building has a head start on the amazing quota. It did feel a little premature and decadent to be discussing exhibition design when let’s face there are a few other details to iron out first; nonetheless it was wonderful and the three other women around the table were brilliant, funny, and entertaining and we have already managed to take some good decisions about presenting the plans of the exhibition. So  I have returned to my desk with a spring in my step.
