Founded in 1901, East London’s internationally renowned Whitechapel Gallery has an outstanding reputation for consistently turning heads and drawing in crowds the world over, displaying a vast and vivid collection of both modern and contemporary art for the public. Having featured work from the likes of Picasso and Jackson Pollock, Whitechapel plays an integral, unique role in the shaping of our capital’s cultural landscape, bringing East London to the forefront of contemporary art.
More popular than ever, this historic cultural landmark gives visitors the chance to engage and interact with a huge expanse of contemporary art and dialogue with creatives, with a whole host of current events and exhibitions to suit both young and old alike. At the forefront of education in the arts, and with a wide, varied range of public events programmes, there truly is something for everyone here.
On display until April 2018, you’re going to want to take a look at the ISelf Collection: The Upset Bucket. Free to enter, this exhibition is comprised of 28 artists, whose pieces examine the human condition, and how we determine and project our identity through our consumer choices. It really is a thought-provoking, existential conundrum, and you’re bound to find something to gawp at! Just one of dozens of fascinating exhibitions, we highly recommend you make the trip to Whitechapel Gallery in East London.
