Description: 'The original East End gallery is to reassert itself as the centre of the most vibrant artistic community in Europe.' ...The Financial Times

The 'Whitechapel Art Gallery' was founded in 1901 to bring great art to the people of east London.

Internationally acclaimed for its exhibitions of modern and contemporary art and its pioneering education and public events programmes, the Gallery has premiered international artists such as Pablo Picasso, Frida Kahlo, Jackson Pollock, Mark Rothko and Nan Goldin, and provided a showcase for Britainís most significant artists from Gilbert & George to Lucian Freud, Peter Doig to Mark Wallinger.

The Gallery plays a unique role in the capital's cultural landscape and is pivotal to the continued growth of East London as the world's most vibrant contemporary art quarter.

The Grade II Whitechapel Gallery was designed by architect Charles Harrison Townsend. This purpose built gallery is an outstanding example of the Arts and Crafts movement and its aspirations of being accessible, spiritually uplifting and transformative. This development also builds on the 1980s expansion by Colquhoun and Miller under the directorship of Sir Nicolas Serota and inaugurated by the Queen Mother.
