a single important work of art or a coherent body of work within a focused environment. A striking aspect of these galleries was the rule that an artist could only exhibit once, thus opening the doors to many new and upcoming artists.

Currently White Cube galleries can be found in Hong Kong, São Paolo and two locations in London; Mason’s Yard and Bermondsey. White Cube Bermondsey opened in 2011 and is the largest with more than 58,000 sq ft of space that includes exhibition spaces, private viewing rooms, an auditorium and a bookshop. This building which was once a warehouse in the 1970s has now become one of the largest commercial galleries in Europe.

It is located on a street not far from London Bridge Station and the latest building to dominate the London skyline, the Shard, and presents a modernistic building which literally invites you to walk in. After entering through the surprisingly large, yet light, doors you can find a reception counter and directly in front of you a wide, white, corridor that forms the centre of this gallery.

The corridor deceptively appears straight with no doors or exits, but as you walk along openings in the wall become apparent such as an entrance to the bookshop and to the various exhibition spaces. The end of the corridor leads directly to the auditorium. It is a very well designed building which certainly succeeds in giving the appearance of having lots of quiet space in order for visitors to truly enjoy the art on the walls. There are several different kinds of exhibition space which allow different kinds of art to be shown, such as paintings, sculptures and even performance art.

Entry into the gallery is free and exhibitions tend to last around four to seven weeks, it has a very well stocked bookshop as well as a 60 seat auditorium which is well suited for showing artists films, feature films and lectures. It is one of the more modern, and delightful, galleries in London and is highly recommendable.
