Celebrating the Fragile Beauty exhibition at the Victoria & Albert Museum in South Kensington, Another Man will be co-presenting in a panel discussion, titled Alternative Universes in Photography.

Occurring on the last Friday of every month, the V&A’s Friday Lates bring together leading and emerging artists and designers through live performance, film, installation, debate, live DJ sets, and much more. All events are open to the public and free to attend. The theme for June’s programming, Dreams and Desires, sees a variety of artists and performers connect to explore dreams as an empowering form of resistance.

At the Lydia and Manfred Gorvy Lecture Theatre at 8.15pm, join Dazed art and photography editor-at-large and AnOther contributor Ashleigh Kane, who will be hosting a talk with leading photographers Maisie Cousins, Juno Calypso, Trinity Ellis, and William Waterworth, who will delve into the role of world-building in art and photography.

Elsewhere in the programming, Italian DJ and producer Ehua will be performing a set, artist Anders Duckworth will be enacting a dreamlike performance through a non-binary lens, artist and illustrator Alex Mein will host a collage workshop inspired by James Bidgood’s seminal film Pink Narcissus, there will be a screening of Nan Goldin’s Sirens, which is dedicated to the first Black supermodel Donyale Luna, among other must-see workshops, films and events.

The V&A’s current shows, Fragile Beauty: Photographs from the Sir Elton John and David Furnish Collection, Tropical Modernism: Architecture and Independence, and the newly opened Naomi: In Fashion exhibition will also be open until 10pm.
