The Whitechapel Gallery’s beautiful historic building is a house of adventure, full of great art and ideas from around the corner and around the world.

With free exhibitions, collection displays, film screenings, public debates and a world-class bookshop and restaurant, the Whitechapel Gallery is one of the UK’s great cultural hubs.

The summer 2022 highlights include The London Open, a triennial exhibition offering a free, lively space to discover new work and how the next generation of London-based artists are responding to recent times. This year, the exhibition brings together a selection of the most dynamic and critical contemporary art made since 2018. Featuring 46 artists, topics ranging from the personal to the collective, the cathartic to the poetic, and the political to the environmental. New perspectives in painting, sculpture, moving image, installation, and performance are also offered, from the younger to the more established artist.
