  Over 400 guests gathered at the Whitechapel Gallery on 24 January for the In Person opening of Ugo Rondinone - zero built a nest in my navel.

The evening featured a special performance by poet John Giorno, with an introduction by Curator David Thorpe and Whitechapel’s Head of Exhibitions and Projects, Andrea Tarsia. Following the reception a dinner was held in honour of the artist at St. John Bread and Wine.

Dinner was supported by Sadie Coles HQ, London, Galerie Eva Presenhuber, Zurich, Matthew Marks Gallery, New York, Galerie Almine Rech, Paris, Galerie Esther Schipper, Berlin, Galleria Raucci/Santamaria, Naples.
