Organised in partnership with Afterall, Exhibition Histories is a regular series of talks at the Whitechapel Gallery focusing on contemporary art exhibitions from the past fifty years that have changed the way art is seen and made. The series is inspired by the Exhibition Histories books published by Afterall.
