Misk Art Institute has partnered with MAXXI Rome to create an exciting five-day masterclass for architects and interior designers wishing to pivot to a career in exhibition design.
This masterclass is aimed at upskilling those interested in a career in the museum sector with the technical skills for creating spaces. The masterclass will culminate in creating an exhibition design to display a number of artworks from the MAXXI collection.
