Ce que vous allez faire
If you love food and are curious about the collections of the V&A then this tour is for you! I am currently writing a book about design and food to be published in 2020, and will take you through some of the fascinating objects in the collection that contribute to this history. We’ll look back to the beauty of ancient ceramics in Asia, the ironware of cauldron cooking and scullery maids, the elegance of refined metalwork, and the modern and contemporary pieces of serve ware at the V&A. From posset pots, to puzzle jugs, subtleties, and tazzas, I look forward to revealing some of the most intriguing objects to you on our tour. Before we enjoy tea and a scone with clotted cream in the stunning period rooms (the oldest museum restaurant in the world) I’ll point out a few relevant objects to the history of tea service in the UK.
Hi, my name is Corinne. I’m a design curator with a background in art, design, and architecture, and have a passion for food. I trained as an artist in New York and London, then as a designer and curator in the Netherlands. I love passing on my knowledge and enthusiasm of these subjects to others. I have been a curator at the Royal Institute of British Architects, a tour guide at Whitechapel Gallery (London) and Baltic Centre for Contemporary Art (Newcastle). I’ve been a Londoner for over 15 years though I was born in Tennessee, I love meeting new people from around the world.
Ce qui est inclus
The tour will conclude with tea and a scone with clotted cream and jam, eaten in the period rooms of their café.
Our tour will explore the collections of the V&A. The V&A is the treasure of London and my favourite museum. The collection boasts over 2.3 million objects covering over 5,000 years of art, design, craft and architecture. Established in 1852, the V & A even housed an early food museum. The first director declared it a “schoolroom for everyone,” to educate visitors about art, design, science, and manufacturing.
