Medieval and Renaissance GalleriesThe V & A has been on a makeover mission of late, spending millions on new galleries to house their Theatre and Performance and Ceramics collections. But the latest launch, the £30 million Medieval and Renaissance Galleries which opens on 2nd December, unveils the biggest project undertaken since the museum's British Galleries opened in 2001. The regenerated space dedicates ten galleries - an entire wing - to the museum's unique collection of masterpieces of medieval craftsmanship and an impressive collection of Italian Renaissance sculpture. An entire gallery is devoted to a group of pieces by Donatello, his 15th-century contemporaries and followers. Exquisite and important medieval items include the Becket Casket - an enamel casket dedicated to St Thomas Becket dating to around 1180 - and the Gloucester Candlestick (1104-15). Hunting tapestries hang alongside Gothic altarpieces while significant pieces like the Symmachi Panel show the influence of the later Roman Empire on medieval art. MUMA (McInnes Usher McKnight Architects) - the architectural practice already responsible for the V & A Cafe which opened in November 2006 - have been tasked with the redesign.
