Michael RakowitzIraqi-American artist Michael Rakowitz, whose winged bull that once guarded the gates of Nineveh in Iraq, currently sits on Trafalgar Square's Fourth Plinth, has his first major European survey. Drawing on architecture, cultural artefacts and cuisine, the installations within the Whitechapel Gallery tell stories of social ritual, conflict and loss. Rakowitz's casts of players and objects reveal the legacy of colonisation, modernism and globalism. His giant Fourth Plinth winged bull, made from date syrup cans, is part of an attempt to recreate all 7,000 objects looted from Iraq's museums, a project which is represented in the exhibition.

 

About Whitechapel Gallery

Designed in a distinctive Arts and Crafts architecture style by Charles Harrison Townsend, the Whitechapel, Britain's first purpose-built arts gallery, is renowned both for the beauty of its light, airy space and for embracing the local community in its work. Founded in 1901, extensive refurbishment saw the gallery, reopened in April 2009, double in size. More about Whitechapel Gallery
