Recommendation by Lemi
Since 1901, the Whitechapel Gallery has brought artists and their art (both locally made and internationally acclaimed) to the people of East London. Rub elbows with the next Frida Kahlo, Mark Rothko, or Gilbert & George—all of whom have also exhibited here. Strike up a conversation with fellow enthusiasts. That’s what the art is for! The gallery engages with the community and reaches out to the next generation through special programs. Whitechapel also hosts a plethora of talks about art and pressing issues. Buy a book from their extensive stock to keep the learning going even after you’ve left.
