Virtual Studio Visits is a programme curated by Whitechapel Gallery’s youth collective, Duchamp & Sons, inviting artists across the globe to share their creative workspaces and practices. Each visit is framed around a specific theme devised by the group including community, sustainability and the environment, music, wellbeing, identity, and representation. See upcoming visits here.
Duchamp & Sons is Whitechapel Gallery’s youth collective. They meet regularly to explore art, curate exhibitions, film, music and performance events at Whitechapel Gallery. Their choice of name combines a reference to the artist Marcel Duchamp and to a shop on Whitechapel High Street, Albert & Son.
