DESCRIPTION

This lecture will consider the past, present, and future of the world’s leading museum of art and design, exploring its place in the international heritage sector today.

Dr Tristram Hunt, Director of London’s Victoria and Albert Museum, will discuss how the museum’s founding commitment to design, education, and industry continues to define it today. Tracing the V&A’s genesis from its Victorian roots, he’ll consider how the V&A’s civic foundations—the national and the global—engendered a world-class collection. Dr Hunt will use this cultural lens to consider the museum’s place in the world today, whilst setting out his vision for the future.

The lecture is a part of the series “Theories and practices of cultural leadership” organised by Garage Museum of Contemporary Art together with the Cultural and Education Section of the British Embassy in Moscow.
