I made the rookie mistake coming into a professional press preview in super casual attire. At least I wasn’t alone – my aspiring rapper/poet companion, Tee Peters.
The press preview was a somewhat formal event.
The Victoria and Albert Museum is pleased to present its new Exhibition Road Quarter with a series of art and design commissions, performances, fashion shows, and family activities in part the REVEAL Festival. There will be lots of events for all the family such as a Digital Kids Minecraft activity and collaborations with neighbouring Albertopolis institutions, such as the Science Museum and Imperial College.
The Blavatnik Hall is a new entrance into the V&A that will transform how visitors experience and discover the Museum and collections.
The festival will open with a special music and digitally-themed Friday Late on 30 June, hosted in collaboration with Boiler Room, which will bring audiences to the V&A and beam the Museum out to the world.

The V&A is working with Discover South Kensington, which brings together the Museum and the other leading cultural and educational organisations in the area to promote innovation and learning, and to the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea who led the transformation of Exhibition Road public realm.
