We invite members on a field trip to the V&A's Ocean Liners exhibition, where we will hear from its curator, Anna Ferrari.
"Experience a unique journey through the design stories of the world's greatest ocean liners, including the Titanic, Normandie, the Queen Mary and the Canberra, and find out how these impressive vessels helped shape the modern world."
The Victoria and Albert Museum's Ocean Liners: Speed and Style exhibition explores the designs of "the romantic and remarkable age of ocean travel," and is the most comprehensive ever of its kind.
As well as having symbolic significance, serving as inspiration for films such as Titanic and Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, ocean liners are also responsible for the mass immigration of the 20th and 21st Centuries, as well as being instrumental in exportation and importation, maintaining empires and engaging in warfare. The exhibition is made up of film clips, posters, artefacts and two ship vessels, as well as clothes and furniture retrieved from famous ships.
On Friday 1st June, we invite members to join us on a field trip to the V&A, where the exhibition's curator, Anna Ferrari will be giving us a personal introduction to the exhibition, as well as insights into its curation. We're invited to explore the exhibition at our leisure, followed by a Q+A with Anna for those keen to learn more.
Drop us a line below if you'd like to come along.
