Eight Ways to Get Your Arts Fix From Home

Because social distancing doesn’t mean cultural distancing.

HOFA Gallery’s Here & Now Virtual Exhibition
Raising funds to support the NHS, Here & Now will feature contemporary works by artists including Bran Symondson, Katya Zvereva, Joseph Klibansky, Zhuang Hong Yi and Max Patté, as well as emerging French artist, Florian Eymann, who recently made headlines when his exhibition in Miami sold out before it opened to the public.

Technicolour Malaise Exhibition, by Trate
As of last Thursday, a new 3D, interactive gallery has showcased the latest exhibition by a Canadian-born, London-based artist whose haunting work reflects his fascination with the way people’s experiences are etched into their physical traits.

David Zwirner’s Viewing Room
Having launched their online Viewing Room in 2017 – the first commercial gallery to do so – David Zwirner conceived this portal as a highly curated seventh gallery space. In lockdown period, a poignant exhibition to take in is Wander Lust: Travel Drawings by Marcel Dzama, which runs from 15th April.

Peter Fetterman Gallery’s The Power of Photography Digital Campaign
The campaign’s aim is to highlight hope, peace and congeniality in the world via inspiring and simple yet beautiful photographs from photographers who best capture the human condition. Enough said.

Kamel Mennour’s From Home
Running until 20 April, the Paris and London gallery’s online exhibition questions – aptly enough, right now – our relationship with the most intimate place in our daily lives at the moment: home. Through 25 works, it looks at how artists including Neïl Beloufa and Marie Bovo have tackled the concept of domestic space.

Alexander McQueen’s Music Initiatives

McQueen Music (#McQueenMusic) will allow those at home to stream music from the house’s fashion shows. John Gosling – who has overseen the brand’s show soundtracks for more than two decades – has already edited a nine-hour selection for McQueen’s Spotify channel, and more collaborators are in the pipeline including Isobel Waller Bridge and the London Contemporary Orchestra.

Hauser & Wirth’s ‘Dispatches’
Dispatches is a homespun series of original video and online features and events that connects audiences with artists. ‘Louise Bourgeois: Drawings 1947 – 2007’ is available to view here, while an exhibition of new drawings made in isolation by the artist George Condo, ‘Drawings from Distanced Figures’, can be viewed here.
