East End (Hoxton, Brick Lane, Spitalfields, Shoreditch)
The Whitechapel Gallery is one of London’s premier venues for displaying contemporary art. After acquiring the Whitechapel Library and completing an extensive expansion project, the gallery has nearly doubled in size. The newly expanded Whitechapel Gallery features a Collection Gallery, displaying collections from around the world, and Commission Gallery, highlighting works created specifically for the Whitechapel Gallery each year. Throughout its history, the gallery has premiered such emerging artists as Picasso, Rothko, and Pollock, solidifying its place among London’s most influential galleries.
