FAD Magazine covers contemporary art- News, Exhibitions, Interviews and cool art stuff reported on from London

Next week Hector Campbell will take over our Instagram account @worldoffad

As the Covid-19 pandemic forces art galleries, museums and art initiatives to move online, many of us are left missing the enriching experience of viewing works of art in person. While virtual viewing rooms, online exhibitions and social media residencies can provide a much-needed momentary escape into the artistic realm, there can be no substitute for physically standing before a painting, orbiting a sculpture or traversing an installation.

With that in mind, starting from Monday (April 13th), art historian, writer and curator Hector Campbell will be taking over the FAD Instagram account @worldoffad to highlight some of the upcoming exhibitions that have sadly had to be postponed. We encourage you to engage and familiarize yourself with the artists and galleries featured, in preparation for visiting the exhibitions once this pandemic passes.
