Whitebox Art Space
At the outstart of its fifteenth year, WBX’s mission continues to follow the core of its original mandate which is to present broad ranging contemporary art forms by innovative artists and curators whose efforts to exhibit thought-provoking, intellectually and visually challenging art is many times overlooked and, at times, question the more popular, media and market-oriented focus of other New York contemporary arts venues. WBX’s purpose sets it apart from other organizations by not exclusively focusing on artists nor is it strictly a curator-based exhibition space. In this capacity, WBX has developed a multi-purpose direction allowing it to examine and present the contemporary arts from within their culturally specific contexts while providing a forum in which, aside from the general public, youth, students and seasoned arts professionals can explore, learn and engage with new ideas. The subsequent exhibitions and other programs arise from today’s complex issues and multilayered elements that influence and impact everyone culturally and that are associated to other disciplines such as anthropology, sociology and the politics and transformations resulting from a global consumer marketplace. WBX has become known as a venue in which the general public, students and arts professionals can meet, dialogue and exchange ideas that are socially and culturally transformative. As such, White Box has gained peer recognition for being a welcome haven, one that sponsors and endorses open and flexible approaches while embracing a global focus in the selection of its collaborators, partners, curators and artists.
