In April 2009 the Whitechapel Gallery re-opened its doors after an ambitious expansion transforming its spaces and doubling its size. The century-old institution is the artists’ gallery for everyone. With beautiful galleries, exhibitions, artist commissions, collection displays, historic archives, education resources, inspiring art courses and a dining room, the expanded Gallery is open all year round, so there will always be something free to see.
"You may already know about Whitechapel Art Gallery, but what you my not know about is Late Nights Experimental - arty lock-ins with might-be-big bands playing acoustically (previously Florence and the Machine), live art and spoken word (£6–8, 8–11pm ‘officially’, monthly Fridays, sometimes more frequently; check website). Also open till 9pm every Thursday for film and talks." - Hg2 London
