Margate’s new Turner Contemporary gallery, one of the largest and most important spaces for art outside London, will open to the public on Saturday 16 April 2011.
Designed by internationally acclaimed architect, David Chipperfield, winner of 2007 RIBA Stirling Prize and RIBA Royal Gold Medal for Architecture, the opening of the new landmark building will be one of the key cultural events in 2011.
