Experimental video, gut-wrenching photographic collages, dramatic installations: if it shows true innovative talent, the Chisenhale has it. This ambitious nonprofit in London’s Tower Hamlets has become renowned for its dedication to uncovering new artistic talent and nurturing that talent at its seminal stages. In fact, Chisenhale’s unique space, a restored 1930s veneer factory, often plays a vital role in the artists’ production. Chisenhale has shown work by such celebrated artists as Gillian Wearing, Sam Taylor-Wood, Rachel Whiteread and more recently, James Richards, David Noonan and Josephine Pryde. The gallery also hosts a spectacular series of lectures, discussions and film screenings.
Chisenhale participates in a number of East London events and festivals, such as the summertime East London Art Weekend featuring artist-led family workshops, late-night art trails and extended gallery hours.
