V&A East announce new acquisitions of works by Jamie Hawkesworth, Molly Goddard, Mawuena Kattah and Kehinde Wiley.

New acquisitions of work by Jamie Hawkesworth, Molly Goddard, Mawuena Kattah and Kehinde Wiley have been announced by V&A East as they shared plans for the opening of the V&A East Museum and V&A East Storehouse in Stratford’s Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.

We are excited to see Mawuena Kattah’s work gaining recognition and look forward to seeing the work on display when V&A East opens in 2025.

‘Reflecting V&A East’s approach to collecting, new acquisitions destined for V&A East tell stories about contemporary creativity and motivations for making – whether as self-expression, creative experimentation or ways in which art, design and performance responds to broader social, cultural and environmental issues.’

You can find out more about V&A East on their website.
