Organised across three Fitzrovia galleries – TJ Boulting, Edel Assanti and Webber Gallery – as well as the historic Fitzrovia Chapel, with fists, it kicks, it bites brings together work by students graduating in 2020 from The Royal College of Art’s (RCA) MA Photography course. With the RCA unable to hold a physical degree show due to lockdown, the galleries were thrilled to be able to provide an opportunity for the public to view some of the exciting, assertive and experimental photographic and video art made by this year’s graduates.

Portraits for the NHS

The Net Gallery and artist Tom Croft have partnered to create a virtual exhibition showcasing portraits of NHS staff, created during the current crisis. The exhibition incorporates work by 15 artists, all members of the Contemporary British Portrait Painters (CBPP), which represents many of the top portrait painters living and working in the UK. The display, which is exclusively available online, was installed and scanned at Fitzrovia Chapel in London, the former chapel of Middlesex Hospital. The virtual exhibition celebrates frontline workers through portraiture and will raise funds for NHS Charities Together, to help support to the ongoing COVID-19 relief effort.
