Since Whitechapel Gallery’s open submission exhibition began in 1932, it has developed a reputation for launching artists’ careers and offering a platform for local artists. Formerly known as the East End Academy, The London Open continues to grow.

Below are the details of each artwork available to purchase from this year’s edition. All proceeds support the artists and the Whitechapel Gallery as a registered charity.
