Over the last 20 years, Fact magazine has operated at the intersection between electronic music and cutting edge contemporary art. A part of The Vinyl Factory Group, Fact engages with a global audience of over 1million readers via its audio visual online channel, and is now relanching its much loved print magazine in a new format this year. Each issue will launch in tandem with a major exhibition at 180 The Strand, curated and presented by Fact. This November this will compromise the largest ever European exhibition by Ryoji Ikeda, Japan’s leading a/v artist and electronic musician. There will be three cover stars of Fact issue 001 – these being Ryoji Ikeda, Kelsey Lu and Pan Daijing. Features include artists Kahlil Joseph, Jamilla Johnson-Small, Cecilia Bengolea, 404.zero and cultural scenes in Shanghai, Kampala and Berlin. Fact will host a dizzying rotation of large-scale art shows open to the public with a focus on the new wave of artists creating immersive experiences, with the Fact Space opening in the basement of 180 the Strand in 2021. The FACT curatorial program will build upon the success of previous Vinyl Factory exhibitions at 180 The Strand such as The Infinite Mix, Other Spaces by UVA, Test Pattern by Ryoji Ikeda, Isle of Dogs by Wes Anderson and Love is the Message by Arthur Jafa.
