This event has now passed, find out what else is going on at V&A (Victoria and Albert Museum)

What makes someone a celebrity and what propels some of us to seek fame above all else?

Friday Late will be programmed across three seasons spanning the year. The third and final season of 2020 is framed by illusions. In the age of social media filters, hidden messages and fake news, what is real or not?

The first Friday Late of this season looks at fame in the digital age, who attains it and why audiences are gripped by this ever-moving field? What does the future hold for the famous? From fan fiction to ‘cancel culture’, we explore the ups and downs of the celebrity, past, present and future.

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.
