Whitechapel Gallery Centenary Exhibition - In 2001 the Whitechapel Gallery celebrated its centenary with an exhibition and accompanying catalogue. Exhibiting artists included: Alfredo Jaar, Ian Breakwell, Susana Solano, Cathy de Monchaux, Boyd Webb, Rachel Lichtenstein and Alan Dein, Zarina Bhimji, Hamish Fulton and John Murphy.

Rachel Lichtenstein and Alan Dein's collaborative mixed media site-specific installation in this exhibition University of the Ghetto, developed out of a commission from the Whitechapel Gallery in 2000 to create an oral history archive of memories of the Whitechapel Library (1892 - 2005).

University of the Ghetto enabled vistors to the exhibition to hear some of these recordings. Other elements of the installation included projected images from the library's collections, photographs from the reading rooms and original C19th tables and chairs from the library.
