V&A Dundee Shortlisted for the Art Fund Museum of the Year 2019
V&A Dundee has been shortlisted alongside four other museums for this year’s Art Fund Museum of the Year, the world’s largest and most prestigious museum prize.
The other finalists include HMS Caroline in Belfast, Nottingham Contemporary & Pitt Rivers Museum in Oxford and St Fagans National Museum of History in Cardiff.
Speaking on behalf of the judges, Stephen Deuchar, director, Art Fund, said: 'Despite (or perhaps because of) the complex environment of our times, the UK’s museums continue to challenge and inspire. The five shortlisted museums have each offered outstanding and different approaches to the vital task of engaging with the widest public in new and adventurous ways. We congratulate all those who are on the shortlist and encourage everyone to go and visit them.'
We are so proud to have supported the team at the V&A Dundee on this incredible project and it is an amazing achievement that they have been shortlisted for such a distinguished accolade - we are keeping our fingers crossed for the award ceremony which takes place on Wednesday 3 July!Back to Press Room
