Victoria & Albert Museum throws the question: “what is luxury?”. Discover this definition with the Design in Vogue. An interrogation how luxury is made and understood is the theme of the new exhibition at Victoria & Albert Museum (V&A)What is Luxury?
“Luxury has a long history of controversy. More recently, the increase in prominence and growth of luxury brands against the backdrop of social inequality has raised new questions about what the term means to people today. Changes in culture and communication have also stimulated interest in less tangible forms of luxury, such as the desire for space and time.”
In the exhibition you can expect to see plenty of luxurious and beautiful objects but with an added intellectual challenge as well.The exhibition is separated into four consecutive sections: Creating Luxury, A Space for Time, A Future for Luxury, and What is Your Luxury? The curatorial elements of the exhibition will defy our first assumption about luxury by seeing alleged luxury objects in strange and divergent ways.
