Whitechapel

It was our first trip to the Whitechapel Gallery and while the building was amazing, it was full of contemporary art that I didn’t really understand at all. The main show was called Conquest of the Useless and I failed to see anything artful about the pile of junk they had gathered. They did have a lovely architecture exhibition though; drawings and photos were spread out on tables with video of the completed buildings in use projected nearby, their sounds combining to create a busy yet peaceful atmosphere that filled the room.
