EXHIBITIONS AT FITZROVIA CHAPEL
LEIGH BOWERY: Tell Them I’ve Gone to Papua New Guinea
7 January – 6 February 2022
The Fitzrovia Chapel presents an exhibition celebrating the life and work of renowned performance artist Leigh Bowery. The chapel is the only remaining building of the Middlesex Hospital, where Leigh died from AIDS on New Year’s Eve 1994. Leigh is a legendary figure who spans the worlds of art, fashion, dance, club and music. Essentially he himself was the living breathing work of art: his now iconic designs and costumes were meant for Leigh, as he pushed his body through ever more extreme creations, designed to shock and thrill onlookers from dance floor to gallery.

18 August – 22 August 2020
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.
