What's On: April at the Whitechapel Gallery

What's On: April

Take a tour of Eduardo Paolozzi

I think what draws me to Paolozzi is that there’s a kind of focus to the chaos. And when you’re a performer, your brain is in a similar sort of state.” 
Phill Jupitus

Armed with an Eduardo Paolozzi Art Map, comedian Phill Jupitus takes on London’s most iconic Paolozzi sites, starting off at the Whitechapel Gallery exhibition (closes 14 May) with stops at Tottenham Court Road, the British Library and more.
Download the free Transport for London Eduardo Paolozzi Art Map or pick up a copy at any Zone 1 Tube station.
