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.
The Whitechapel Gallery presents photography and video works from the collection of
the National Museum of Women in the Arts, Washington, D.C., the only international
museum dedicated to women artists, on display in spring 2017.
The Prize, which has been awarded in alternate years since 2005, supports UK-based female artists who have not previously had a solo survey exhibition, making it the only visual art prize of its kind the UK.
The Whitechapel Gallery, Collezione Maramotti and Max Mara are delighted to announce the six shortlisted artists for the seventh edition of the Max Mara Art Prize for Women: Helen Cammock, Céline Condorelli, Eloise Hawser, Athena Papadopoulos, Lis Rhodes and Mandy El-Sayegh.
