When London's Victoria & Albert Museum (V&A) first announced it was opening a design-centered space in Shenzhen, China, it made international headlines.
Next Wednesday, the center will also see a visit from V&A Director Dr. Tristram Hunt, a historian and journalist as well as politician – prior to his current job, he served as a member of British Parliament.
Hunt, who has published four nonfiction books, will deliver a lecture titled 'V&A: A Museum for the Future.' Appropriately enough, he'll cover the history of the V&A, from its founding in 1851 to its latest iteration in the PRD.
He'll also discuss the museum's mission to promote and support design plus, presumably, how that ties into the organization's future.
The talk will be given in English, with Chinese translation provided. Entry is free. To book your spot, click here.
