Thinking outside the box

Thinking outside the box can be tricky, especially when inside a cube. But that was the task facing Adriano Pedrosa, the curator of Open Cube. The international group exhibition can be seen at White Cube Mason's Yard until the 21st September, and features seventeen artists who challenge the function of gallery space.

The idea was inspired by the essays written by Brian O'Doherty who examined the postwar art crisis, and how art generally had to conform to the layout of a gallery. The White Cube was a change from this, allowing the gallery to conform to the art rather than the other way around.

While the ground floor of the exhibition explores the concept of public and private space, as well as the value of currency, the lower ground floor compares constructed geometric shapes with more abstract, organic, and fluid forms.

Each participating artist was interviewed by Pedrosa about their work, and you can read the transcripts in the fully illustrated catalogue that accompanies the exhibit.
