Every month, the Whitechapel Gallery maps out a Walking Tour with a selection of the latest First Thursdays exhibitions in east London. The accompanying map is available for free at the Whitechapel Gallery or available to download below.
April’s Walking Tour begins at the Whitechapel Gallery . Before you set off, make sure to go upstairs and check out the new display from our archive Q&A: Artists in Conversation. For our first stop, walk across the road to Window Space to see the site-specific work by Felicity Hammond. Now make your way to French Riviera to view the beautiful graphite and oil figurative work by Tom Ellis. The tour then heads to Bethnal Green where the next three galleries all fall on one street. First step into Maureen Paley to see the collaborative work by Gardar Eide Einarsson and Oscar Tuazon. Further up the road is the opening night of Fugazi at Division of Labour. Here, explore the malleability of culture and the layering of social histories within materials and objects. Last stop is The Ryder Projects where Polish artist Ewa Axelrad shows her new compelling work.
