RAD Image Exhibition gives unprecedented access to its archives for the first time at the V & A to mark 100 years
The Royal Academy of Dance has partnered with the V&A to co-curate a free to enter display to mark its centenary. This is the largest display by the RAD in its history and the first new display to open in the V&A’s Theatre and Performance galleries since reopening in August.
The display will tell the story of the RAD; how the Academy transformed dance education in the UK and internationally, working with dance legends such as Margot Fonteyn, Rudolf Nureyev and Tamara Karsavina to make dance history. Over 60 original objects and over 80 archival images – many of which have not been displayed before – will take visitors behind the curtain and into the dance studio of one of the world’s greatest dance education organisations.
The display opens to the public in the museum’s Theatre and Performance Gallery on 2 December 2020 and runs until 19 September 2021.
