The Whitechapel Gallery located in the East part of London in the neighborhood of the same name is one of the major place for temporary contemporary art exhibitions.

The building, designed by Charles Harrison Townsend was founded in 1901 as one of the first publicly funded galleries for temporary exhibitions in London, and it has a long track record for education and outreach projects. It exhibits the work of contemporary artists, as well as organising retrospective exhibitions.

For over a century the Whitechapel Gallery has premiered world-class artists from modern masters such as Pablo Picasso, Jackson Pollock, Mark Rothko and Frida Kahlo to contemporaries such as Sophie Calle, Lucian Freud, Gilbert & George and Mark Wallinger.

The Gallery is a touchstone for contemporary art internationally, plays a important role in London’s cultural landscape and is pivotal to the continued growth of the world’s most vibrant contemporary art quarter.
