Benedict Drew’s most ambitious public presentation in the UK goes on show at the Whitechapel Gallery this summer. 7 June – 10 September 2017, Gallery 1
The Whitechapel Gallery presents a major exhibition by London-based artist Emma Hart (b. 1974) for the sixth edition of the Max Mara Art Prize for Women, a biannual award established in 2005 to champion women artists in the UK. The Prize is a collaboration between the Collezione Maramotti, Max Mara and the Whitechapel Gallery.
The Whitechapel Gallery presents the first major public display of the ISelf Collection in the UK this spring.
In June 2017 Whitechapel Gallery presents A Handful of Dust. Bringing together artworks and documents, the exhibition traces a visual journey through the motif of dust from aerial reconnaissance, wartime destruction and natural disasters to domestic dirt and forensics.
Eduardo Paolozzi (1924-2005) was one of the most innovative and irreverent British artists of the 20th century. Considered the ‘godfather of Pop Art’, his powerful collages, sculptures and prints challenged artistic convention from the 1950s ‘Geometry of Fear’ all the way through the Swinging Sixties and on to the advent of ‘Cool Britannia’ in the 1990s.
Announcing highlights from Whitechapel Gallery’s Spring/Summer 2017 programme: A major retrospective of Eduardo Paolozzi; ‘Terrains of the Body’, a display drawn from collection of the National Museum of Women in the Arts; plus archive displays, commissions and special events
