The V&A’s current exhibition continues a recent trend of exceptionally well curated shows (see two previous posts on my blog) on the development of British design over the last 100 years. The current exhibition British Design 1948-2012 will open tomorrow, closing on 12th August to coincide with the closure London Olympics it promises to showcase British design ingenuity to a global audience.
This exhibition could well be the 21st Century version of the famed Britain Can Make It exhibition staged at the V&A in 1946 in support of the reconstruction of British industry in the wake of World War II. The above linked VADS site includes contributions for our very own John Davis, Curator of the MMU Visual Resources Centre. A link to the VRC Flickr feed features on out mainpage.
