Exhibition details

“The V&A, with its world-class collections of art, design and performance, and its mission to inspire creativity in all its forms, is the perfect stage to celebrate the multifaceted DIVA. Today, the word ‘diva’ holds myriad meanings. At the heart of this exhibition is a story of iconic performers who, with creativity, courage and ambition, have challenged the status quo and used their voice and their art to redefine and reclaim the diva.” Kate Bailey, curator of DIVA

The exhibition will take place from June 24, 2023 to April 7, 2024 at the Victoria and Albert Museum in South Kensington, London
