Whitechapel Gallery presents a major exhibition of 150 paintings that can now be enjoyed alongside a set lunch.

Why not make the most of your trip to Whitechapel Gallery this spring with a two-course seasonal set menu lunch in Townsend to accompany your visit to the Action, Gesture, Paint exhibition.

The exhibition and lunch package are available Tuesday – Saturday with exhibition entry between 11am – 2pm and lunch served in the restaurant between 12 – 3pm. The package is £35 per person including exhibition entry and the two-course set menu lunch.

Whitechapel Gallery brings together 150 paintings by 81 artists from across the globe, in this ambitious exhibition that celebrates the women artists of mid-20th-century gestural abstraction, revealing how these international artists were redefining abstract painting as an arena for action, process and politics in the aftermath of the Second World War.

The exhibition features well-known artists associated with the Abstract Expressionism movement, including American artists Lee Krasner (1908-1984) and Helen Frankenthaler (1928-2011), alongside lesser-known figures such as Mozambican-Italian artist Bertina Lopes (1924-2012) and South Korean artist Wook-kyung Choi (1940-1985). More than half of the works have never before been on public display in the UK.
