Dream OnThe V&A Museum explores the world of dreams and the unconscious with its new exhibition, Dream On. Playing with the notion that objects come to life when we are not looking, the exhibition will weave together several elements and displays. One aspect will be a new work by internationally acclaimed ceramist Christie Brown that has been created in response to the Museum's collection. Ludus Est references dolls and toys in the collections and the artist's own childhood memories to present a series of dream-like tableaux that takes visitors on a narrative journey in which two dolls based on the 1920's Italian Lenci dolls explores the museum after hours. Also on display will be Madeleine Waller and Katherine Tulloh's photographs, which have been created by working with school pupils in order to retell and stage the duo's own dreams.

Collections showcase all aspects of childhood, from games throughout the ages to a historical look at cots, prams and feeding bottles (including a 19th century ceramic bottle).
