Posted on April 3 2012, 11:07am | Author: R* Q | Filed Under: Rockstar, Games

We're honored to announce that the Grand Theft Auto series has been selected for inclusion in the Victoria and Albert Museum's exhibition - British Design 1948–2012: Innovation in the Modern Age. A celebration of UK contributions to the world of art and design in the post-war era, spanning the time period from the 1948 ‘Austerity Games' to this summer's Olympic Games in London, the exhibit is running now through August 12th. Representing each Grand Theft Auto title in the franchise and showcasing the innovation of living metropolises and open world gameplay, the exhibit features a commemorative video chronicling the history of the Grand Theft Auto series - and more.

    Were there any pictures of this exhibit or any release of the video that was shown there?

      Does this mean that you'll be featured in the new V&A museum in Dundee, Scotland when it is eventually built too? P.S. Well done Rockstar!

      Congratulations Rockstar. It goes to show that work you are doing is as important as any of the great designers of music (Bowie), architects or inventors are doing.

      Be proud. I know you don't need this exhibition to validate the work you have done but it's nice for the recognition, I bet?

            CJ still is and will always be my favorite GTA character. Niko Bellic is second, Tommy Vercetti 3rd. But CJ is the undisputed Grove Street gangsta!

              Congrats. Too bad your game for PC still has a dozen lingering issues that make it completely unplayable. I wonder if they are okay accepting broken art into their museum. I don't see how you can consider something art when the textures wont even load properly on most $2000 computers. You guys have failed, thank you Razor1911 :).
