  The Whitechapel Gallery's archives hold an extensive range of material from the past 100 years. Included in the collection are catalogues, press cuttings and installation photographs as well as other related material.

The Whitechapel Gallery archives are currently closed to the public from to enable construction work taking place in the Whitechapel Gallery. The exciting £13 million expansion to incorporate the former library building, adjacent to the Gallery will double space and treble capacity.

Highlights of the new development includes a beautiful, purpose-designed Reading Room and a dedicated Gallery offering increased access to the Whitechapel Gallerys arhive of over 100 years of material including: publications, rare documents, artistís letters, photographs, graphic works, press records, exhibition plans and installations, recordings on tape and video of artists, critics and curators.
