About this Site

Since 1998 White Box has continued its commitment to present, support and produce independent and global curatorial visions through innovative and groundbreaking exhibitions and multidisciplinary programs that reflect a broad spectrum of contemporary art forms. White Box fosters artistic and cultural exchanges for emerging and established artists and curators in an open environment of collaboration and experimentation. From its inception, White Box exhibition programs have radically reenvisioned the work of seminal and established artists, as well as giving exposure to emerging and midcareer artists here and abroad.

In 2008, White Box moved from Chelsea to its current space at 329 Broome Street, adjacent to the Bowery in the Lower East Side. Designed by Robert Marino, White Box now maintains exhibition spaces on two floors of what was formerly a 3,600 sq ft lighting showroom. Commencing its 13th year in 2011, White Box launches a new set of initiatives to develop a multimedia laboratory and library in its lower level space as well as a sustainable garden in its rear yard. New programming initiatives include a Works-in-Progress series for invited emerging artists, and monthly White Box Performance and Film/Video Series. For LIGHT UP, the 12th Annual Benefit Auction, White Box takes light as its inspiration and celebrates such pioneering artists as Dennis Oppenheim and Ivan Navarro, who present powerful and uniquely conceptual approaches to working with light. The proceeds from LIGHT UP will directly support our 2011 exhibitions, programs and new initiatives. A portion of these proceeds will also benefit Paul D. Miller's Vanuatu Pacifica Foundation.
