Ocean Liners: Speed and Style is the first in a series of major changing exhibitions at the new V&A in Dundee showing the very best of international design.
The golden age of ocean liners is inextricably linked with the key decorative trends of the 20th century Art Nouveau, Art Deco, and Modernism. From Brunel’s 1859 steamship, the Great Eastern, to the launch of the QE2 in 1969, Bruce Peter, Professor of Design History at the Glasgow School of Art, will explore the design and cultural impact of ocean liners on an international scale, focussing on their promotion, engineering, interior design, as well as the lifestyle on board.
