From the reopening of favourites like Kettle’s Yard and the Royal Academy to the spectacular new V&A on the Dundee waterfront, this is an exciting year for the art world
One of the most significant new openings of the year will be Scotland’s first design museum – and also the first V&A anywhere outside of London – on 15 September. The museum building sits on the river Tay and boasts a bold, radical design by Japanese architect Kengo Kuma – its shape and form inspired by cliffs on Scotland’s east coast. It will celebrate Scottish design, objects in its collection ranging from a Cartier “Valkyrie” diamond tiara commissioned by the late Mary Crewe-Milnes, Duchess of Roxburghe, to original artworks of The Beano.
