Carter Wong and Partners has won a credentials pitch against “a number of consultancies” to design Nomadic Life and Tents, a year-long exhibition at London’s Horniman Museum.
The exhibition will focus on the Mongolian culture, which is still nomadic, says Andy Feast, the group’s head of 3D design.
“It’ll be a contemporary exhibition, not historically biased, looking at Mongolian, Turkish and Tibetan nomadic life, also gypsies and New Age travellers,” says a Horniman spokeswoman.
“People think that nomads have died out, but it’s not true. We want visitors to realise this,” explains Feast, who will mastermind the creation of five to seven tents to house artefacts and graphic panels.
Carter Wong is also designing a graphic identity for the 480m2 exhibition. “It’s in very early stages,” adds Feast. The exhibition will open in December.
