Identified itself as an artists' gallery for everyone, the Whitechapel Gallery has been open for over a century.
With a focus on local artists and community, the gallery hasn't got permanent exhibitions, but several temporary ones each year. Showcasing art from around the world, some notable exhibitions throughout the years ranged from world-renowned artists like P. Picasso, J. Pollock, M. Rothko, F. Kahlo to contemporary artists like Lucian Freud, Isa Genzken, Liam Gillick, Nan Goldin and Cornelia Parker. As a not-for-profit charity, the gallery has been deeply involved in education since early 1920s by helping schools have resident artists.
Promoting contemporary art, there's plenty to see and do at the beautiful gallery anytime of the year: various exhibitions and collections displayed, historic archives on shows, a bookshop to visit, events, educational and art courses to attend and a chilled cafe and bar to complement them all.
