THE ICONIC LONDON GALLERY EMERGES FROM ITS ASHES PRAISED BY THE CRITICS.

The Whitechapel Gallery, a place for modern art.

The new Whitechapel Gallery opened its doors for the first time after a temporary hiatus to the delight of critics and art lovers as they encountered a bright and exciting gallery.

The enthusiasm for the newly inaugurated gallery has led critics to consider it a modern-day masterpiece and the ultimate place for modern art in London.

The Whitechapel Gallery has undertaken a magnificent transformation as the small London gallery located between a tube station and a KFC restaurant became the ultimate work of art to shock the English capital.

The iconic gallery has doubled its total size by annexing a juxtaposed library building into the main Whitechapel headquarters. The project has been financed by The Heritage Lottery Fund with an approximate cost of £13.5m.

The new facade was designed by Robbrecht& Daem and the final results described as a ” complex [infrastructure] but utterly casual. Everything is focused towards the experience of looking at the art.”.

The new gallery counts with new main floor that feels larger and a more sophisticated entrance. The new library gallery provides extra space as the total size of the Whitechapel infrastructure has doubled under the £13.5 m programme.

“The curious, imperfect symmetry of the spaces somehow heigthens the sense of déjà-vu. But this only intensifies the odd state of mind you need when looking at art” says Kester Rattenbury, writer for The Architects Journal.

London as the ruling capital of the arts.

London as the ruling capital of the arts.

LONDON’S CONTEMPORARY ART WORKS ITS MAGIC ONCE AGAIN.

Despite the gloomy credit crunch mood and Christie’s disappointing sales results last week, London consolidates itself as the capital of contemporary art.

London’s contemporary art fair, offering an eye-popping mix of quality and innovation, had already seduced more than 30,000 visitors attending the second edition of the Frieze Art Fair  last OctoberA series of positive results that only seemed to demonstrate what art collectors and critics had already predicted: London is developing an ever-growing appetite for contemporary art.

An appetite for art that defies the current financial squeeze as shown in Sotheby’s London evening sale of contemporary art earlier this month where a total of 27 pieces were auctioned.  The firm achieved £17, 879, 250 in profits and a fantastic sell-through rate of 92%. Lucio Fontana’s Concetto Spaziale fell into the hands of an anonymous European collector for £4,409,250.

Philips de Pury & Co. sales totaled £5,820,750 and Martin Kippenberg Portrait of Paul Schreber being the firm’s top lot, sold for £432,000. Various artists peaked at record prices while others sold well above their predicted estimates.
