Tartan, the first major exhibition in Scotland in 30 years to focus solely on the iconic textile and pattern, opened at V&A Dundee on 1 April 2023, and includes more than 300 objects from fashion to photography, film to furniture, all illustrating tartan’s universal and enduring appeal. Join V&A Dundee Curator Kirsty Hassard for a behind-the-scenes view, sharing the stories, discoveries and research which shaped the curation of this remarkable exhibition.

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.
