2020 Q?

Fotografiska, Whitechapel, London due to open in 2020 (the intended opening date has been postponed each year for 3 years now, let’s hope this potentially top exhibition space will finally achieve this in 2020)

“London’s largest permanent photography gallery will open in the White Chapel Building in east London later this year, with over 8,000 square metres of exhibition spaces, restaurants, bars and a photography academy, and a programme of exhibitions, talks, screenings and more. It’s the third international site (after Tallinn and New York) for the Stockholm-based Fotografiska Organisation, which opened in 2010 and has hosted exhibitions by artists including Annie Leibovitz, Sally Mann, David LaChapelle and Helmut Newton.” Guardian Jan 2020
