This exhibition has now closed, find out what else is going on at V&A (Victoria and Albert Museum)

Comprising four sitespecific installations, three displays, two online commissions and a series of events – including a special late opening on election night.

Opening up the museum as a stage for debate and discussion, each of these projects focuses on the V&A's role in contemporary life – particularly what it means to be responsible for a national public collection.

Dotted around the museum are four installations by contributing architects, designers and artists; highlights include Jorge Otero-Pailos’s commission which uses conservation latex to ‘clean’ the hollow inside of the V&A's largest object – Trajan's Colum – removing dust and dirt accumulated over decades, and Natalie Jeremijenko's Phenological Clock in the grand entrance, which depicts 12 months in the life-cycle of the flowering plants and pollinating insects that surround the V&A.
