Chisenhale Gallery is one of London’s most innovative galleries for contemporary visual art, promoting national and international developments in visual culture through its ambitious commissioning of solo exhibitions and a newly established programme of public events including performances, film screenings and talks. Chisenhale Gallery is dedicated to increasing access to the visual arts through its artist-led, community and schools education programme.
Chisenhale Gallery has a long-term reputation for producing innovative solo commissions with artists often at a formative stage in their career. In the 1990s Chisenhale Gallery produced exhibitions with artists such as Rachel Whiteread, Cornelia Parker, Gillian Wearing, Sam Taylor Wood, Wolfgang Tillmans, Paul Noble, Pipilotti Rist, Peter Friedl and Thomas Hirschorn and more recently with Marine Hugonnier, Mai-Thu Perret, Rosalind Nashashibi, Lucy Skaer, David Noonan, Simon Martin, Ulla von Brandeburg and Anja Kirschner and David Panos.
In 2011, the Outset-supported exhibition programme included solo presentations by Daniel Sinsel, Josephine Pryde, Janice Kerbel and Jamie Richards.
