Since 1901, the Whitechapel has reliably led the development of new artistic movements. In 1939, it brought to Britain Picasso’s newly painted Guernica as part of an exhibition protesting the then-current Spanish Civil War. Later it introduced Jackson Pollock’s abstracts. There’s always a challenging exhibition, talk, or screening going on.
