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: Power is temporarily closed until further notice. Please check the venue's website for the latest details.

Power is the invisible hand that shapes our lives and yet is often based on illusions.

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

The final Friday Late of 2020 focusses on power, exploring expressions of status and influence, and considering how to convey and subvert power in a time when authority is constantly in flux and power is often fleeting.

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.
