Bags: Inside Out at the V&A, behind the scene
with Dr.Lucia Savi, Curator, Victoria and Albert Museum, London
Moderated by Myrsini Pichou and Xenia Politou
Often projecting bold statements to the outside world whilst concealing our most treasured belongings, the exhibition “Bags: Inside Out” (new opening dates will be released soon) will explore the function, status and craftsmanship of bags. Examined through around 300 objects varying in scale from tiny purses held on a fingertip to luxurious travel trunks, this thematic exhibition will explore the worldwide heritage of these highly covetable objects from the 16th century to today from Elizabethan
England to Contemporary China.
