Free Places for V&A Symposiums

The V&A are offering free places to museum colleagues from across the country to attend two symposiums in the next few months:

The Many Careers of John Lockwood Kipling
Saturday 25 February, 14:00-17:15

This event explores the many careers of John Lockwood Kipling: designer, illustrator, journalist, art school teacher and museum director.

Supported by the Kipling Society

This conference, timed to coincide with the exhibition at the V&A, will explore the international contexts of Kipling’s work and his legacy today. For more information, please contact Supported by the Kipling Society

Garnitures: Vases in Interiors
Friday 17 March, 10.00-17.15

This international symposium explores the phenomenon of garnitures or matching sets of vases and the way in which they are used in the European interior. Displayed above chimneypieces, cabinets and cupboards or over doorways, they embellished or ‘garnished’ the interior and enhanced the status of the owner
