Time is of the essence. This truth is visible, tangible and audible in the masterpieces of horology on display at the Science Museum and the V&A. In both collections the same type of material is collected for different reasons: at the V & A art and design are key, while on the other side of London's Exhibition Road, science and technology take priority. Our weekend of interdisciplinary events will bring together expertise from curators, makers and conservators to explore making and keeping time, both literally and figuratively.
