Chisenhale Gallery

Built into an old 1930’s veneer factory, the Chisenhale Gallery has become an East End staple in London, presenting all manner of contemporary works for the past few decades. This gallery really established itself in the ’90s when it exhibited the likes of Rachel Whiteread, Wolfgang Tillmans,  Sam Taylor Wood and Thomas Hirschorn, but continues this tradition of discovering new, dynamic artists today. You can now expect a five major exhibitions each year, alongside an excellent programme of live events.

The Chisenhale Gallery also has strong focus on development, for both audience and artists alike. For the audience, they create this through forums and workshops for young people, inviting them to engage with contemporary from an early age. For artists, they do this by supporting the development of artists practice, giving them space to devise new projects. It is these progressive, welcoming avenues that make this an excellent gallery, and an insight to the institutions of the future.
