The Audi Innovation Talks is a daily programme of conversations with experts exploring the future potential of technology and innovation.

Curator of the Global Grad Show 2019, Eleanor has worked in the curatorial department at the Design Museum since 2016. While there, she has worked on a number of exhibitions including the Beazley Designs of the Year in 2018 and Imagine Moscow: Architecture, Propaganda, Revolution. She is responsible for the museum’s free displays, curating a triannual programme to complement the main gallery exhibitions. The most recent of these was a retrospective on UK architect Peter Barber, ‘100 Mile City and Other Stories’. The exhibition was the first time Barber’s work was presented in a museum and was listed in the Guardian’s top five architectural moments of 2018. She has also set up and curates a free reading space within the museum, working with the Learning department to showcase the museum’s public programme.

Prior to joining the Design Museum, Eleanor worked at a number of cultural institutions in the UK and abroad, including Garage Museum of Contemporary Art and The Southbank Centre. Eleanor graduated with First Class Honours from UCL with a BA in French and Russian before undertaking a Masters in History of Art at The Courtauld Institute of Art under a full scholarship from the V-A-C Foundation.
