Friday Late: The Postmodern Look
18.30-22.00
This month’s Friday Late celebrates the V&A exhibition Postmodernism: Style & Subversion 1970-1990. Come dressed up in your 1980s finest to take part in free workshops, activities and discussions. See a gig by Maria & The Mirrors, watch a live drag performance by Joey Arias, take part in our mix tape amnesty, or simply pose for the cameras as the V&A goes all postmodern. As a wise woman once said, 'Don't just stand there, let's get to it. Strike a pose, there's nothing to it’.
