Name: Meredith More
Role: Assistant Curator, Scottish Design Galleries, V&A Museum of Design Dundee
Research InterestsMy main research interest is 19th and 20th C Scottish art and design. As Assistant Curator of the Scottish Design Galleries for V&A Museum of Design Dundee, my current research focusses on the V&A’s wide-ranging collection of Scottish objects. I am particularly interested in the Scottish diaspora and Scotland’s international exhibitions.
I have an MA in Curating from the Courtauld Institute of Art, London. My MA thesis focussed on the role of learned societies and public exhibitions in the foundation of regional museums and collections, specifically in the Scottish towns of Perth and Dundee.
Current Projects:Opening in Summer 2018, the Scottish Design Galleries at V&A Dundee will present the extraordinary and internationally significant story of Scotland’s design heritage. They will provide an introduction to over 500 years of creativity, ingenuity and achievement by bringing together around 250 fascinating objects. Furniture, fashion and textiles, ceramics, glass, metalwork, jewellery, books, works on paper, photography, architecture, performance, product, service, transport, digital and industrial design will showcase the huge scope and diversity of Scottish design culture. Drawing extensively on the V&A’s outstanding collections of over 12,000 Scottish objects, as well as significant collections in Scotland and worldwide, the Galleries will display both iconic objects and many works that have never previously been seen by the public.
