Director's Circle + Membership


Director's Circle + Membership

Through a bespoke programme of events, collection visits, dinners and discussions, courses, studio tours and international trips, we offer our Patrons the unique opportunity to explore the art of the 21stCentury with artists and curators as their guides. Our Patrons are highly valued supporters of the Gallery whose generosity directly supports our ambitious artistic programme, helping to shape the future of contemporary art. 

An exclusive group of arts philanthropists who experience a close relationship with the Whitechapel Gallery Director and play a significant role in supporting the Gallery’s artistic vision.  All Curator Circle and Membership benefits, plus:

  • Invitation for you and a guest to every Artist Dinner (three or more each year)
  • Invitation to a breakfast or lunch with the Director
  • Opportunity to host a private, out-of-hours exhibition tour for a group of 12 with a Whitechapel Gallery Curator
  • Complimentary catalogues for every main exhibition
  • Top priority booking on events in the Patron Events Programme and Public Events programme


Patron membership makes a very special gift. Please contact us if you would like to enquire further about Gift Patronage.
