Museums and galleries across the UK are currently subject to temporary closures. Please check venue websites for more information.

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

How can we even be sure what truth is anymore?

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 second event of this season uncovers the truth about truth. It has been said that we live in a “post-truth” world, where facts are sometimes overwhelmed by opposing narratives. How do we protect the essential resource of democracy, the truth, from the lies that surround it?

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.
