Whitechapel Gallery Events For The Remainder Of Summer

Art & Culture

For the rest of summer and the beginning of autumn, there are a selection of events in and around Whitechapel Gallery, and some of them are even free! They all look splendid.

This includes on 30th July a night of debates and performances with artists from The London Open. The event begins with a discussion on the pros and cons of residencies, with exhibiting artist Sam Curtis, curator Rachel Marsden, and Eisler Curator & Head of Curatorial Studies, Daniel F Herrmann. The night goes on to show perfomances by Gaia Fugazza and Frances Scott; a production of Musarc by Sam Belinfante; and a hypnotic event newly conceived by Salvatore Arancio. More information for that here.

A number of free tours will be taking place: including the Whitechapel Walk on 2nd August which takes in some of the local social history of the area and buildings surrounding the gallery and ends at the space to take in some of the lastest exhibitions. More information about that right about here. There will also be a free guided tour of the London Open 2015 by curators Daniel F Herrmann and Poppy Bowers on 13th August, more stuff on that here. And an Artist Focus at the London Open on 3rd September, including work by Rebecca Ackroyd, Mary Hurrell and Ben Woodeson. "The evening also features Alex Baczynski-Jenkins‘ performance Us swerve between us, in which a score determined by the artist choreographs performers on roller blades as they move around the gallery space, reciting a mash-up of poetic samples." Rollerblades! Here.

Doesn't the history walk sound good? That sounds like my kind of night out, and so does the rollerblading.
