BRAFA ART TALKS 2015: Rearranging the Furniture – A New Perspective at the V&A

The Lecture

Since 2001, the V&A in London has gradually transformed its galleries of design and decorative art. The newest, devoted to Western Furniture, took a radical approach: it is the only gallery in the world to examine comprehensively the techniques of construction and decoration, from ancient developments such as intarsia to the most recent 3-d printing. Nick Humphrey, co-curator of the gallery explains the creation of the gallery and explores some of its most fascinating contents.
