Scottish Design Galleries, V&A Dundee
Opening in 2017, the Scottish Design Galleries at V&A at Dundee will present the extraordinary and internationally significant story of Scotland’s design heritage. The galleries will provide an introduction to over 500 years of Scottish design across the globe and will include around 250 objects drawn from the V&A and from collections across Scotland and abroad. A number of publications will be produced in association with the Scottish Design Galleries.
Areas of research include: Scottish design and diaspora; symbolism and national identity; and Modernism in Scotland.
A major new research project will explore the cultural significance and design development of ocean liners from c.1850 to 1970.
