Whitechapel Gallery, London
Founded in 1901, the Whitechapel Gallery is one of the most interesting and provocative art galleries in London.
Situated in Bricklane, it was intended to bring great art to the East End of London, which at the time was socially emarginated and mostly untouched by the artistic fervour that was sweeping the city.
Its halls have exhibited artists the calibre of Picasso, Frida Kahlo, Mark Rothkp and Jackson Pollock, as well as avant-garde British artists such as Gilbert & George and Mark Wallinger.
It has also hosted important events and meetings with musicians and film directors such as David Byrne and Robert Altman.
The Gallery also organized workshops and art courses.
