Exhibition - Tomorrow – Elmgreen & Dragset at the V&A
Elmgreen & Dragset at the V&A: About the Exhibition
1 October 2013 - 2 January 2014
The V&A has commissioned leading contemporary artists Michael Elmgreen and Ingar Dragset to create a major site-specific installation in the former Textile Galleries.
'Tomorrow' will transform these galleries into an apartment belonging to a fictional, elderly and disillusioned architect.
The domestic setting will appear like a set for an unrealised play. A script, written by the artists, will be available for visitors as a printed book. Visitors will be able to explore the apartment, sit on the sofa and read the inhabitant’s books and magazines.
Throughout their career the artists have redefined the way in which art is presented and experienced, raising issues around social models and spaces, and prompting a re-thinking of the status quo.
This ambitious exhibition will feature objects from the V&A's collections alongside works by the artists and items sourced from antique markets to create an unexpected encounter for the museum visitor.
