A true cabinet of curiosity
Kader Attia has created a half-formed library. Microscopes, artifacts and curiosities are displayed in a wooden museum-inspired exhibition, as a mirror infinitely reflects back the accumulated objects. This commission was made specifically for Whitechapel Art Gallery, and uses the old reading room as a jumping off point. Immerse yourself in the process of repair. This event is free and entry is on a first come first served basis, so it can't be guaranteed. We need your card details to store the event information in your profile, but rest assured, we won't charge you a penny.
“Attia's gift is for proximity, analogy, subtle connection.”
