A papier-mâché dinosaur is such an enticing element to include in an art installation for children that it's a wonder this is the first to appear in a work produced for the Whitechapel Gallery's annual Children's Commission. As well as the two-metre long...

Kader Attia

  • Free

In art there are only so many colours, forms and concepts, just as in music there are only so many notes. French-Algerian artist Kader Attia’s work deals with this idea that there is a limit to what we can create. In his eyes, man does not invent, man...

The gallery should have a parental guidance for the Sarah Lucas exhibit. I visited the gallery with my children and walked in on a very sexually explicit exhibition, no warning until it was too late. Exhibitions such as this must carry a warning when advertised and at the point of entry. There are age restrictions for films, venues, bars, but not for explicit gallery exhibitions. Whitechapel please sort this out.

The Director of the Whitechapel, Iwona Blazwick isn't on every single 'most influential people in art' list for nothing. A visit to the Whitechapel always feels like you're at the forefront of what's happening in the contemporary art world. It's free to enter, has a terrific bookshop and is bang next door to Aldgate East tube station (a design destination in its own right). I'm very much looking forward to the Sarah Lucas exhibition in October 2013 and the Bloomberg commission is always worth a visit in its own right.
