Is this Tomorrow? at the Whitechapel Gallery

14 February - 13 May 2019, Whitechapel Gallery, London

We are excited to support Whitechapel Gallery’s latest exhibition Is this Tomorrow?, a major new project which takes This is Tomorrow, Whitechapel Gallery’s 1956 landmark exhibition, as its point of departure. Bagri Foundation is proud to have enabled a new commission by Bangladeshi artist Rana Begum and award-winning Dhaka-based architect Marina Tabassum.


The Bagri Foundation, established in 1990, is a family foundation spanning three generations. With a shared spirit of curiosity we are driven by a desire to learn and are inspired by creative, unique and unexpected ideas that weave the traditional and the contemporary of Asian culture.Through a diverse programme of film, visual arts, music, dance, literature, courses and lectures, we give artists and experts from across Asia, or those inspired by the continent, wider visibility on the global stage.


We are proud to forge partnerships with a number of established organisations. These include: the Ashmolean Museum, The Royal Opera House, the Science Museum, the Royal Collection Trust, Shubbak Festival of Contemporary Arab Culture, the London Indian Film Festival, The Prince's Foundation School of Traditional Arts, the River to River Florence Indian Film Festival and Whitechapel Gallery.
