Description - Life Is More Important Than Art by

'Life is more important than art and that is why art is important' - James Baldwin

Life is More Important Than Art is a summer-long, multidisciplinary programme of exhibitions, installations, participatory projects and live events. It explores the intersection of art and everyday life and the role of the contemporary art institution at a time of uncertainty and change.

Representative of, and animated by, the distinctive and radical history of Whitechapel Gallery, Life is More Important Than Art points to the critical role that art can play in both reflecting lived experience and opening up new possibilities for thinking, feeling and dreaming.
