Wilhelm Sasnal - Whitechapel Gallery

Wilhelm Sasnal, Roy Orbison 1, 2007
A major exhibition of work by Polish painter and filmmaker Wilhelm Sasnal is showing at the Whitechapel Gallery until 1 January, 2012. Sasnal makes paintings which are in dialogue with photography and art history - so the show makes for an interesting complement to Gerhard Richter at Tate Modern (see below).
Read reviews by Adrian Searle and Rachel Cooke, and an interview with Ben Luke.
