V&A director Tristram Hunt said: “From foxgloves and rabbits’ tails to 1950s African-diaspora designers, from plastic and tartan to contemporary menswear and South Korean popular culture, the V&A’s ambitious exhibitions programme 2022-2023 is both unashamedly global and beautifully intimate in scale.

“As the world reawakens from a brutal year of narrowed horizons, our V&A South Kensington and V&A Dundee exhibitions mix the historic with the contemporary and academic rigour with pop-culture phenomena to showcase the best of art, design and performance – and help to foster an engaged, reflexive and culturally attuned UK.”
