More in Walking Tour: December

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 information desk or available to download below.

Decembers’ Walking Tour begins at the Whitechapel Gallery. Start your journey by checking out our new exhibitions: ISelf Collection: The Upset Bucket, MATT + FIONA: Room for Art and Artists’ Film International: Luis Lázaro Matos, Zheng Mahler, Nguyen Phuong Linh.

And if you haven’t seen them already, don’t miss Thomas Ruff: Photographs 1979 – 2017 , Leonor Antunes: the frisson of the togetherness and Commissions from Performa’s Archives.

For your first stop head to Benk + Bo (8 min). Cedric Bardawil presents a new pop up exhibition, Six Days at the Sporting Club. Next stop, visit new bookshop and gallery Caravansérail (15 min) to see Anoushka Schellekensillustrations. For your third stop, head to Espacio Gallery (4 min) for Beyond Boundaries, a mixed media group show and last but not least, to Hundred Years Gallery (17 min) for the opening of The Student Beings: Game of Memes, a joint exhibition of collaborative digital art by artist and educator Rosemary Osborne, the #thestudentbeings of Eltham Hill School, Lewisham, and digital fine artist Jeremy Gluck.
