Opening on 17 June, the V&A’s new Design: 1900 – Now galleries will explore the history of design and its impact on how we live, work, travel, communicate and consume. Join lead curators Corinna Gardner and Johana Agerman Ross as they present the new curatorial vision for the galleries, which will house the V&A’s world-leading collection of modern and contemporary design as well as its celebrated Rapid Response Collection, and consider how designed objects can prompt us to ask questions about our past, present and future.
This talk will be held on Zoom, and ticket holders will receive a link to view live on the morning of the event. The talk will also be recorded, and available to view for ticketholders after the event.
