TICKETS have gone on sale for the inaugural exhibition at V&A Dundee, which opens in September.

The Ocean Liners: Speed and Style show will explore the design and impact of the ocean liner on an international scale, featuring more than 250 objects.

Highlights include Stanley Spencer’s painting The Riveters and the Christian Dior suit worn by actress Marlene Dietrich as she arrived in New York on board the Queen Elizabeth in 1950.

Designed by Japanese architect Kengo Kuma, the £80 million V&A Museum of Design opens on Saturday, September 15.

Sophie McKinlay, V&A Dundee’s programme director, said: “Organised by the V&A in London and the Peabody Essex Museum in Salem, the remarkable show will re-imagine the golden age of ocean travel and showcase more than 250 objects from public and private collections around the world.

“Ocean Liners: Speed and Style will be the first major V&A show exhibited in Scotland and the first of many internationally significant and ambitious exhibitions at V&A Dundee.”

Those wishing to see the show, which will be at V&A Dundee until February 24, 2019, can book tickets from the museum’s website.

Tickets for the opening weekend will be released nearer the time.
