East London, since the 20th Century, has been a haven for artists and artistic institutions. “Pretty much every major artist in London has worked in East London at one time or another, including numerous Turner Prize winners.”  Bethnal Green, once home to Jack the Ripper and WWII bombings, has among neighbouring localities, become home to a number of galleries: Modern Art, Fred, Vilma Gold, 20 Projects, The Cell Project, Victoria Miro to name a few….
