11 - 9pm, Thursday 22nd Oct
Late Opening Thursday - Kai Althoff & Hiscox Collection - [All current exhibitions are free]
Two Exhibitions on Show
>> ‘This is Kai Althoff’s first public show in London. He was born in 1966 in Cologne, Germany. From the very beginning of planning this show, the artist talked of Bernard Leach and his deeply rooted love for the work of this man. After all, Kai Althoff says, would he not have become what he is now, he would have pursued being a potter… Instead, he has always been drawing and painting, making things including music – yet never a “pot proper”.
The work is presented in three galleries. One can look closely at paintings, works on paper and ephemera.
>> 'Accelerate your escape' - Gary Hume explores the Hiscox Collection: British painter Gary Hume and Venezualan artist Sol Calero each bring new perspectives to the Hiscox Collection in their personal selection of works at Whitechapel Gallery.
Important works by renowned artists including Etel Adnan, Nan Goldin, David Hockney, Noemie Goudal, Prem Sahib, Joan Miró, Eduardo Paolozzi and Pablo Picasso, are on public view for the first time in two consecutive, artist-curated exhibitions drawn from the Hiscox Collection.
