Quote of the day: Leonie Bell, V&A Dundee

Disco by Bill Bernstein

“Even though nightclubs won’t be reopening for a long time and many have closed down permanently, we wanted to assert them as critical cultural spaces, just as much as museums are. We’ve never had so many people ask if we’re having an opening party. People are just desperate to go out and dress up.”

Museum director Leonie Bell on the new nightlife exhibition Night Fever: Designing Club Culture that has just opened at the V&A in Dundee. (I had no idea there was a V&A in Dundee). The exhibition is an updated version of a show that was first staged in 2018 at the Vitra Design Museum in Germany. It sounds superb. More info here.
