A World to Win: Posters of Protest and Revolution – 1st May to 2nd November 2014
This exhibition will look at 100 years of political posters, from the “Votes for Women” campaign of the early 20th-century right up to the more recent “Occupy” movement. Political activists have always used posters to educate and organise the masses. Simply making a poster is in itself a means of taking action, while for many the posters represent an important part of cultural output.
Horst: Photographer of Style – 6th September 2014 to 4th January 2015
The V&A’s new exhibition is a definitive retrospective of the work of Horst P. Horst, one of the 20th century’s greatest photographers. During his 60-year career, dating all the way back to 1930s Paris, Horst photographed many top models wearing the creations of Chanel, Schiaparelli and Vionnet. He then moved on to New York where he experimented with early colour techniques.
