Rachel Whiteread

Tate Britain, London

12 Sep 2017 - 21 Jan 2018

Tate Britain will present the most substantial survey to date of work by Rachel Whiteread. It will reveal the extraordinary breadth of her career, from the four early sculptures shown in her first solo show in 1988 to works made this year especially for Tate Britain. Whiteread’s work ranges in scale from the monumental to the intimate in a variety of materials such as plaster, resin, rubber, concrete, metal and paper. Some of Whiteread’s most important large-scale sculptures will be shown alongside her more intimate works. These will include Untitled (Room 101) 2003 – a cast of the room at the BBC’s broadcasting House thought to be the model for Room 101 in George Orwell’s Nineteen Eighty Four. A range of smaller sculptures will include casts from architectural features such as floors, doors and windows to domestic objects such as tables, boxes and a selection of Torsos, Whiteread’s casts of hot water bottles. Find out more about the Rachel Whiteread exhibition from the Tate’s website.
