Alice in Wonderland 

A source of inspiration for art and fashion is now on display

Text: HELEN PAPAIOANNOU

From manuscript and imagination to a global phenomenon embracing all ages, the Victoria and Albert museum is showcasing an immersive and theatrical show charting the evolution of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, covering her journey from paper to film and fashion, and from Disney to Dali.

Her origins, adaptations and reinventions span 158 years. Alice is a global symbol, an artistic landmark, a cultural phenomenon. The V&A’s exhibition celebrates one of the most iconic, imaginative and inspiring stories of all time. Offering an immersive and mindbending journey down the rabbit hole, this fantastical exhibition explores Alice in Wonderland through over 300 objects spanning film, performance, fashion, art, music and photography. The V&A is the first museum to fully explore the cultural impact of Alice and her ongoing inspiration for leading creatives, from Salvador Dalí and The Beatles to Little Simz and Thom Browne. Highlights include Lewis Carroll’s original handwritten manuscript, illustrations by John Tenniel, Ralph Steadman and Disney, stage costumes, fashion from Iris van Herpen and photography from Tim Walker and Annie Leibovitz.
