Taking contemporary art as a basis for educating the public in international issues and culturally diverse perspectives may seem like a pretty heavy handed approach to modern art. But then the building, the first new-build public space in London since the Hayward, is perfectly placed in Shoreditch to offer this kind of multi-cultural viewpoint, with two cavernous spaces capable of showing everything from art exhibits to screenings and talks, whilst the Library provides lots of research material to the public and an on-site café offers brain-food – which by the sounds of it – you’ll need.
