Whitechapel Gallery has today unveiled the transformation of its ground-floor gallery into a vast, eerily abandoned public swimming pool.
An extraordinary event in the Gallery's history is recreated against a background of Britain’s impending departure from the European Union in 2019.
This September the Whitechapel Gallery is transformed by over 80 creative and cutting-edge publishers for four days for the London Art Book Fair 2018.
No Ordinary Protest is an immersive new installation that combines film, sound and performance.
The Whitechapel Gallery is pleased to announce that Rachel Whiteread (b. 1963, UK) is the sixth artist to receive the prestigious annual Art Icon award in partnership with Swarovski.
The first UK survey of Elmgreen & Dragset announced for this Autumn, in addition to new exhibitions and commissions across our archive, collection and project galleries.
The Prize, which has been awarded in alternate years since 2005, supports UK-based female artists who have not previously had a solo survey exhibition, making it the only visual art prize of its kind the UK.
