Located in a converted 1930s veneer factory near Victoria Park this not-for-profit has been setting out its stall as one London’s most radical commissioners of new art for the past few years. It’s always a challenge, and always surprising. You never know what you’re going to get, but you know it’s going to get the old noggin ticking. Artists who have worked with the gallery include Rachel Whiteread, Cornelia Parker, Paul Noble and Pablo Bronstein.

Ima-Abasi Okon review
There’s a soft orange glow being cast across the floor of the Chisenhale. Warm shadows ripple out of mini glass chandeliers filled with cognac and palm oil, stuck into a low false ceiling. Opposite, Ima-Abasi Okon has screwed an army of air conditioners...Wednesday July 24 2019 - Sunday September 1 2019

Thanks for the review. This would have passed me by otherwise. I love the idea.
To be a Grumpy Old Man for a moment and risk sounding ungrateful, I was overwhelmed by the generosity but underwhelmed by the lack of imagination of the presents for my 50th birthday (Chris not included - thanks for the Chateau Musar) so at 51 I bought myself Tate, RA and British Museum memberships. For the last three years I've been late in, had long lunchtimes and left early to get to galleries during the week, occasionally taken my boss to members' previews and had a standing date with an old colleague to the RA Summer Ex opening. Of course I go back at weekends to enjoy as much as I can at that time. Chatting to one of the guards at Tate Britain last Bank Holiday at the Conceptual Art show, he recommended that I take two oranges rather than one as they were particularly juicy and well worth having. He wasn't wrong.
Out of necessity, I squeeze a lot of my art-going into snatched minutes or hours during the week. I applaud Maria Eichhorn for her statement.
