This Friday Late, visitors are invited to consider one of the most important aspects of the human body – our eyes.

Friday Late at the V&A celebrates all aspects of contemporary visual culture using the V&A collection and building as its inspiration. For the first time, Friday Late will be programmed across three seasons spanning the year. The first season of 2020 will look at the body’s place in society and question how our bodies can shape contemporary notions of identity.

The second event of this season explores the human eye. Consider how our eyes can deceive us, and how we've been conditioned to view the world under our own lens. Examine the effects of both seeing and being seen, watching and being watched.

Audiences will come face-to-face with some of the most innovative artists, musicians and designers working today. Brought to life through live performances, film screenings, installations, debates, DJ sets, workshops and late-night exhibition openings.

All events are free and places are designated on a first-come, first-served basis, unless stated otherwise. If the Museum reaches capacity, access will be permitted on a one-in, one-out basis.
