The largest of the White Cube gallery's London sites, providing more than 5440 m2 (58,000 sq ft) of interior space on a site of 1.7 acres (74,300 sq ft). The building dates from the 1970s and was primarily used as a warehouse before the current refurbishment.
White Cube Bermondsey was designed by Casper Mueller Kneer Architects who are based in London and Berlin. The building includes three principal exhibition spaces, substantial warehousing, private viewing rooms, an auditorium and a bookshop. The "South Galleries" provide the principal display area for White Cube's expanding programme of significant exhibitions. Three smaller galleries, collectively known as the "North Galleries", feature an innovative new programme of exhibitions. In addition, at the centre of the building, there is a gallery of 81m2 entitled "9 x 9 x 9". An auditorium will allow White Cube to present an education programme, artists’ films and lectures.

The owners of the White Cube gallery have taken the "white cube" theory of hanging art on white walls literally. This is the third gallery of this name, after Hoxton Square (unfortunately closed) and Masons Yard in Mayfair. The sheer size of this converted warehouse is impressive in its own right, and I particularly love the 9x9x9 cubic space at its heart - a true white cube!
Fantastic place to spend 30mins if you're in the area. It's a commercial gallery but most visitors are not there to buy.
A really cool venue with constantly changing exhibits means there is it keeps you interested throughout the year. It's contemporary so works may not always be to everyone's taste.
It's been a brilliant addition to bermondsey street and I would recommend you pop in if you...more
Cool space to pop into when you're in Bermondsey! I stopped by for the Christian Marclay exhibition recently and it's a lot of fun.
Big dark room for silent onomatopoeia exploding on all four walls, and the Pub Crawl piece in the hallway is entertaining since your shadow lines up so perfectly with the projections.
Odd musical performance art in the South Gallery. Way too serious for what is...more
I absolutely loved the Anselm Kiefer exhibit "Il mistero delle cattedrali", which greatly employed the big spaces offered by this White Cube gallery.
They also have a nice projection room where they screen a film for free every Sunday, each time chosen by a different contemporary artist.more
