  • Visitor Information

Chisenhale Gallery occupies a renovated 1930s veneer factory on Chisenhale Road in Tower Hamlets. Since 1980, the old veneer factory and Godson's brewery industrial buildings have been occupied by three organisations - Chisenhale Gallery, Chisenhale Dance Space and Chisenhale Art Place Trust (CAPT). The gallery holds up to five solo exhibitions each year and in the 1990s produced exhibitions with well known artists like Rachel Whiteread, Cornelia Parker, Gillian Wearing, Sam Taylor Wood and Wolfgang Tillmans.
