Time Out says
This East End stalwart reopened in 2009 following a major redesign and expansion that saw the Grade II listed building transformed into a vibrant, holistic centre of art complete with a research centre, archives room and café. Since 1901, Whitechapel Art Gallery has built on its reputation as a pioneering contemporary institution and is well remembered for premiering the talents of exhibitions by Jackson Pollock, Mark Rothko and Frida Kahlo among others. Expect the rolling shows to be challenging and risqué.

Radical Figures: Painting in the New Millenium review
Painting, schmainting. All anyone cares about these days in galleries are immersive installations, video works and conceptual interventions.

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.
