Our history has always been the future. The Whitechapel Gallery has premiered world-class artists from modern masters such as Pablo Picasso, Jackson Pollock, Mark Rothko, Frida Kahlo, Alice Neel and Lucian Freud to contemporary artists such as Sophie Calle, Paul Noble, Thomas Struth, Gillian Wearing and Mark Wallinger.
We bring together artists and audiences to give everyone a direct experience of art. With beautiful galleries, exhibitions, artist commissions, collection displays, archives, education resources, inspiring art courses, talks, symposia, film, Café/bar and Bookshop, the Whitechapel Gallery is open all year round, so there is always something free to see.
The Whitechapel Gallery is a touchstone for modern and contemporary art internationally, plays a central role in London’s cultural landscape and is pivotal to the continued growth of the world’s most vibrant cultural art quarter.
