Friday Late at the V&A - Endeavour: Failure is temporarily closed until further notice. Please check the venue's website for the latest details.

What does it mean to fail in today's culture?

Friday Late will be programmed across three seasons spanning the year. The second season of 2020 will focus on the subject of endeavour, with artists responding to how we strive to achieve and what this reveals about the high expectations placed on us by society and ourselves.

The first Friday Late of this season looks at failure, uncovering the ideas that never make it from the drawing board, and those which did – but perhaps shouldn't have. Examine projects which failed in their ambition but which offer unintended positive results. Discover how failure can be beautiful, tragic or dangerous, and ask who is given permission to fail in our society.

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.
