The electronic music exhibition at London’s Design Museum is opening this month

It was initially due to open in April

A programmed exhibition about the history of electronic music is opening at London’s Design Museum on 31st July as art spaces begin to reopen.

The exhibition, titled ‘Electronic: From Kraftwerk to The Chemical Brothers’, was originally scheduled to take place from 1st April to 26th July, but was postponed in March as exhibition spaces closed their doors due to the spread of coronavirus. 

It will explore the "hypnotic world of electronic music" and "discover its global impact from underground movements to the mainstream," and features appearances from the likes of Jeff Mills, Ellen Allien, Jean-Michel Jarre and more. It will also feature a 3-D experience surrounding electronic pioneers Kraftwerk, with the installation soundtracked by legendary DJ and producer, Laurent Garnier.

The Design Museum will have new safety measures in place, including reduced capacity, social distancing rules and the compulsory wearing of face masks. 

“We can’t wait to welcome everyone back,’ said Tim Marlow, the museum’s chief executive and director. ‘There couldn’t be a better exhibition to reopen with. A powerful statement about creative freedom across music, art, technology and design, which will be celebrating what many of us have missed the most during the lockdown.”
