White Cube Gallery
White Cube Gallery Review
When the United Kingdom's highest-profile commercial gallery moved to this huge converted 70s-era warehouse on Bermondsey Street, it sealed the area's reputation as a rising art-scene hot spot. This is the home gallery of some of today's top contemporary artists, including Jake and Dinos Chapman, Gilbert and George, Gary Hume, Anthony Gormley, Sam Taylor-Wood, Chuck Close, Anselm Kiefer, and several other artists with international reputations. An antiseptic central cuboid gallery, the "white cube"—also called "9 x 9 x 9" (meters, that is)—rests between two other spaces that host smaller exhibitions. There is also a bookshop and auditorium.
