The Whitechapel Gallery opened in 1901 and during its long history it has hosted work by artists such as Pablo Picasso, Jackson Pollock and Lucian Freud. It was originally founded to bring art to the people of East London1901年にオープンしたホワイトチャペル・ギャラリー。過去にはパブロ・ピカソやジャクソン・ポロック、ルシアン・フロイドのようなアーティストによる展覧会も開催された歴史ある場所でもある。もともとはイーストロンドンの人々に芸術をもたらすために設立された公営ギャラリーで、のちに成功し、毎年多くのアーティストの展示会が開催されている。2009年にはリニューアルされ、1階は2つのギャラリールームとブックストア、クラークルーム、講堂、カフェバー、アーティストのビデオルームがあり、上階は6つのギャラリーと読書スペースによって構成されている。

and it has successfully exhibited many artists every year since it opened. The ground level consists of two gallery rooms, a bookshop, cloakroom, dining room and an auditorium, the café/bar level also includes an artist’s video room and the first floor another six gallery rooms and a reading room.

The key to the success of this gallery is the availability of space for new exhibitions every year, it provides a place for new art and creative writing while allowing visitors to constantly discover something new. Recent exhibitions include the Story of the Government Art Collection where you can read letters from government archives about the use of art in government buildings; one email is from 2011 concerning the art in the British embassy in Libya – unfortunately the urgent evacuation of British personnel from Tripoli meant that works of art were irretrievably lost. Also the work of British artist Gillian Wearing is currently on display, one thought provoking work is entitled Signs that say what you want them to say, and not Signs that say what someone else wants you to say where strangers were offered paper and pen to communicate their message and photographed. The auditorium will host a future exhibition, Artists Film International, showcasing international artists working with film, video and animation.

Whitechapel Gallery also organises frequent discussions, some free and some which require paid entry, courses and workshops; such as a workshop on the potential of archives in making art, exhibitions and publications, as well as films, performances, children’s events, BSL (British Sign Language) interpreted events, etc. The gallery is also involved with the Emerging Artists Award, which is for unrepresented UK-based artists under 35 and not in education – they can submit their work, across the spectrums of photography, video, sculpture, performance or any other form, and the Max Mara Art Prize for Women, which are awarded biannually to a UK based artist who has not previously had a major exhibition.

This gallery is a truly inspiring location which always has something new for its visitors and which aspires to be involved in every area of art possible, while always having room for new and emerging artists.
