As part of his campaign as Chair of Interior and Spatial Design at UAL entitled ‘Popular Culture and the Interior’, Professor Ben Kelly will be hosting a symposium at the ICA on the 14th March 2015. The symposium, ‘Interior Design: Dead or Alive’, will take stock of the ability of iconic interiors to effect and influence the direction of popular culture and the wider world.
