Christian Montenegro - V&A Friday Late


The souvenir programme for the V&A Friday Late 'Journeys from the South' is gloriously illustrated by Christian Montenegro. From indigenous materials to ancestral technologies, it looks at the tradition of craftsmanship in Argentina and how it still influences the country's contemporary art and design. Visitors will hear about how current fashion designers are using traditional Munachi cult dolls to bring hand-weaving skills back to life, see a tapestry installation that pays homage to the Argentinian landscape, and join on a fiesta to celebrate Argentina's cultural roots through design, art and music.
