Fallen Fruit Magazine:  V&A Edition brings together public participation, local histories and story-telling. Using strategies of collage this temporary team of culture advocates use fruit as a symbol, object and/or subject to create original editorial content to produce a site-specific limited edition contemporary culture magazine. Each edition is unique and is editorially focused to topics and subject matter that is historically meaningful to a neighborhood and/ or region. For the ‘Victoria and Albert Edition,’ we collaborated with the Families Programme at the V&A in South Kensington, London on The Imagination Station.

V&A Families programme:  The V&A Families programme nurtures imagination, creativity and intergenerational play, developing innovative partnerships with practitioners to deliver thought-provoking and multi-sensory activities that foster a life-long love of learning.  #vamfamilies

Inviting visitors to participate, taste and debate, this bold exhibition explores current experiments at every stage of the food system – from compost to table 

From gastronomic experiments to urban farming, this exhibition brings together the politics and pleasure of food to ask how the collective choices we make can lead to a more sustainable, just and delicious food future.

This exhibition explores how innovative individuals, communities and organisations are radically re-inventing how we grow, distribute and experience food. Taking visitors on a sensory journey through the food cycle, from compost to table, it poses questions about how the collective choices we make can lead to a more sustainable, just and delicious food future in unexpected and playful ways.

The Exhibition will  feature a major new commission by artists Fallen Fruit who will create a bespoke 12-metre squared wallpaper for the museum and maps of available fruit in the city.  This will draw on the V&A’s collections and the horticultural history of the site – which was once an important nursery for fruit trees – to explore the past and contemporary role of fruit in creating shared culture. –more HERE.
