REVIEW : Whitechapel Gallery Summer Show
Head East for a mixture of works, live events and installations inspired by the words of James Baldwin - 'Life Is More Important Than Art - That's Why Art is Important'. Drawing inspiration from everyday life there are some weird but very wonderful works on show.
The most engaging gallery for children is number 7 with the best interactive art installation we have seen for quite a while. Created by Sarah Marsh, Stephanie Jefferies and the Sensory Tool Kit get ready to relax and play in a room packed with soft squidgy, bendy stuff. Create your own sculptures, swing from the stretchy fabric, wrap yourself with lavender scented velvet snakes. It's really fun. A great place to rest weary legs on a hot summer days.
Heaps of free events planned over the summer holidays, full details here.
