Fantasy and Fear in Contemporary Design

Telling Tales: Fantasy and Fear in Contemporary Design, will be open for free admission at the V&A in London through October 18, 2009. Yet another good reason to enjoy the V&A this summer.

Sectioned off into three part, this exhibition explores the narrative quality of objects, connecting the past and the present. In the Forest Glade evokes the innocence of fairy tales, The Enchanted Castle, is driven by the rise in the 18th Century of the novel and prints and lastly, Heaven and Hell features design that questions our anxiety about morality. Furniture, ceramics and lighting are used by a new generation of international designers, to push the boundaries between design and what is considered art.
