The Whitechapel Art Gallery is London´s most prestigious independent gallery and has been at the cutting-edge of art for one hundred years. It was the first public gallery dedicated to temporary art exhibitions and it has held significant shows of the great names of British 20th century art, such as David Hockney, Gilbert and George, Anthony Caro, and Gary Hume. It is also famous for being the first place in which internationally renowned art has been shown in the UK, for example: Picasso´s Guernica, Jackson Pollock, Mark Rothko, Frida Kahlo and Cindy Sherman.

Inspirations

Whitechapel Art Gallery is part of the following Inspirations:

Ten Free Art Galleries in London by Ben West

"For more than a century the Whitechapel Gallery has featured outstanding contemporary artists, whether Picasso, Pollock, Rothko or Kahlo in earlier years, or, more recently, the likes of Lucian Freud, David Hockney, Gilbert and George and Mark Wallinger. It’s extensive £13.5 million revamp, completed in 2009, has resulted in three times the exhibition space than it had before, There are regular events and activities, including childrens’ drawing workshops, family art trails and courses, and for older visitors, courses and workshops, talks and discussions, performances and film programmes."

The Ten Best Smaller Museums and Galleries by Olivia Greenway

"A few minutes’ walk from Algate East tube station, the Whitechapel Art Gallery was established in 1901. A not-for-profit educational organization, it has pioneered cutting edge art since its inception. In 1939, Picasso’s Guernica, now in the Sofia, Madrid was displayed here on its only visit to the UK; similarly, in 1982, an unknown Frida Kahlo exhibited here. 1971 saw David Hockney’s first show. Again, in 1992, the nation was introduced to Lucien Freud. As well as a café, there is a well-regarded dining room run under the auspices of Angela Hartnett. Free admission and good disabled access. Closed Monday."
