Alice : Curiouser and Curiouser V&A

Alice : Curiouser and Curiouser

Alice in Wonderland was published in 1865 by Charles Dodgson under the pen name Lewis Caroll, a story of a young girl who falls down a rabbit hole into a fantasy world of strange creatures and topsy-turvy adventures – Alice has been translated into 170 languages, sold millions of copies, inspired films, art, pop and rap songs, fashion and graphic design.  Alice herself is seen as a feminist icon championing her right to self-autonomy, and inspiring generations with her creative curiosity and fearless quest to discover.  Alice inspired artists as diverse in time, style and location as contemporary Yayoi Kusama and Surrealists Salvador Dali, Max Ernst and Aileen Agar (who all features in the exhibition). Exploring its origins, adaptations and reinventions over 157 years since publication, this immersive and theatrical blockbuster show charts the evolution of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland from manuscript to a global phenomenon beloved by all ages.
