The Nomad team were delighted to create and produce the exhibition design for Adventures in Design, V&A Dundee’s international showcase for the XXI Milan Design Triennale. Supported by British Council and The Scottish Government, the new museum is officially representing the UK at the major international exhibition entitled 21st Century: Design After Design. The V&A Dundee presentation is part of the Scottish Government’s Year of Innovation, Architecture and Design 2016, which celebrates the nation’s global contributions to architecture, design, engineering and science.
The Milan Design Triennale will take place 2 April–12 September 2016 in venues across Milan including La Triennale, Fabbrica del Vapore, the Accademia di Belle Arti di Brera, the Pirelli Headquarters and the newly opened BASE Milano, home to the V&A Dundee exhibition. The event is expected to attract up to 500,000 visitors.
Philip Long, Director of V&A Dundee, said: “The UK is a globally important nation of design, both historically and today. Adventures in Design explores this story, demonstrating the way we are leading the way in bright ideas that can transform lives. We are delighted to be given the opportunity to represent the UK at this leading international celebration of design and would like to thank British Council and The Scottish Government for their support in this.”
Now under construction, V&A Dundee will be the first V&A museum anywhere in the world outside London, with a mission to enrich lives through inspiring people and promoting their understanding of design.
V&A Dundee is the first building in the UK by Kengo Kuma, the renowned architect responsible for the Tokyo 2020 Olympic stadium, and will open in 2018.
An international centre for design, the new museum will host major exhibitions, celebrating design heritage, inspiring and promoting contemporary talent and encouraging future design innovation.
