Whitechapel Gallery is pleased to present Theaster Gates: A Clay Sermon, a major solo exhibition by Theaster Gates (b. 1973, Chicago). The exhibition initiates the artist's year-long, multi-venue investigation into the material and spiritual significance of clay in craft, labour, community building, religion, colonialism and global trade.
For her first solo presentation in the UK, internationally acclaimed artist Simone Fattal (b. 1942, Syria) leads visitors on a journey of transformation in a major new sculptural commission.
The dreams, nightmares and twilight landscapes of 35 international artists are brought together in This is the Night Mail, an artist-curated display by Ida Ekblad (b. 1980, Norway). Drawing from the personal collections of Christen Sveaas and that of the Christen Sveaas Art Foundation, the exhibition creates a densely-packed mise-en-scène featuring painting, photography, sculpture and drawings.
This autumn, Whitechapel Gallery visitors are invited to participate in an interactive installation by world famous artist, musician and activist Yoko Ono (b.1933, Japan).
