On display from the 14th February, the Whitechapel Gallery’s exhibition will transform the gallery by featuring experiential installations, environments and pavilions, conceived by over 30 world-leading artists and architects working in collaboration.

The exhibition will invite visitors to travel through a sculpture formed from security barriers, peer into a model museum for the world’s most famous artwork, empathise with animals by entering structures built for them, or consider how a machine could equip us for the future through ten very different projects to pose the question – is this tomorrow?

Artists featured in the exhibition include: Rachel Armstrong, Rana Begum, Tatiana Bilbao Estudio, Cao Fei, Mariana Castillo Deball, Cécile B. Evans, Simon Fujiwara, Andrés Jaque / Office of Political Innovation, David Kohn Architects, mono office, Farshid Moussavi Architecture, Hardeep Pandhal, Amalia Pica, Jacolby Satterwhite, Zineb Sedira and Marina Tabassum Architects.

Is This Tomorrow? is modelled on the gallery’s 1956 exhibition This is Tomorrow, one of the most influential exhibitions in Whitechapel Gallery’s history. It grouped British architects, painters and sculptors including Eduardo Paolozzi, Erno Goldfinger, Richard Hamilton, James Stirling and Alison and Peter Smithson.

Is This Tomorrow? will be on display at the Whitechapel Gallery from  the 14th February until the 12th May 2019.
