Gallery 46 in Whitechapel is our new sister gallery to be used as Londonewcastle Project Space. The new space, established through the partnership of Martin J Tickner and Sean McLusky and Fruitmachine founders, Martin Bell & Wai Hung Young breaks fresh ground for the open-source, non-conformist curatorial approach Tickner and McLusky employed at their (rightly) notorious MEN Gallery, in Shoreditch.Housed in a pair of newly renovated Georgian houses in the grounds of Whitechapel Hospital, GALLERY 46 is set over 3 floors and 8 rooms and is a kaleidoscopic addition to Whitechapel’s burgeoning gallery scene and close by its artistic...→

Locked Room Scenario is the most ambitious project to date by British artist Ryan Gander. Inside a white cube exhibition space will be a diverse range of work from sculptures, paintings and photographs to performance and video. When visitors arrive, the building will be open but the exhibition will appear to be closed.
Offering only fragmentary glimpses of an enigmatic group show, inaccessible spaces, partially visible artworks and leftover or discarded pieces of information, Locked Room Scenario will invite the viewer to adopt a detective's mentality to piece together the available clues, scrutinise detail, and imagine what cannot be seen. An accumulation of evidence and encounters with objects, information and passers-by may precipitate an unnerving awareness of fact and fiction beginning to merge.

Artangel commissions and produces exceptional projects by outstanding contemporary artists and this year celebrates 20 years of Michael Morris and James Lingwood as its Co-Directors. Over the past two decades, the projects have materialised in a range of different sites and situations and in countless forms of media, from film and video to sculpture and sound installations. Artangel has generated some of the most talked-about, contentious and acclaimed art of recent times, including work by Francis Alÿs, Matthew Barney, Jeremy Deller, Douglas Gordon, Roni Horn, Michael Landy, Brian Eno, Gregor Schneider, Robert Wilson, Rachel Whiteread, Roger Hiorns and Susan Philipsz.
Ryan Gander is a British artist born in 1976. He has established an international reputation through artworks that materialise in many different forms from sculpture to film, writing, graphic design, installation, performance and more besides. His work springs from jackdaw instincts for appropriation and re-presentation, and associative thought processes that connect the everyday and the esoteric, the overlooked and the commonplace.
