Exhibition: Rachel Whiteread at Whitechapel Gallery

British artist Rachel Whiteread unveiled her latest piece today, a frieze decorating the outside wall of London’s Whitechapel Gallery. Tree of Life is the first publicly commissioned piece by Whiteread, who came to prominence in the early ’90s with her sculptural installations like House, a life-sized concrete model of a condemned house in East London. Tree of Life is part of the London 2012 Festival, and made possible with support from the Art Fund.
