BIO
Whitebox is a non-profit art space that serves as a platform for contemporary artists to develop and showcase new site-specific work, and is a laboratory for unique commissions, exhibitions, special events, salon series, and arts education programs.

Whitebox offers free and diverse programs for the surrounding communities including Chinatown, the Lower East Side, and international cultural tourism to experience an artist’s work in a meaningful manner.

Whitebox Art Center Vision

Through site-specific exhibitions, performances, screenings, readings, lectures, and panel discussions, Whitebox provides the opportunity to experience an artist’s practice in a meaningful way to the surrounding communities of Chinatown, the Lower East Side, and cultural tourism. It is Whitebox’s artistic vision to provide artists with sustained exposure, and create the environment for more in-depth interaction between audiences and artists’ practices. As a non-profit art space, Whitebox aims to be a space for invention. It achieves this by inviting emerging and established artists to respond to its exhibition space with interventions, performances, and developing long-term programming that allows them to develop projects and engage with audiences.

Whitebox Art Center’s History

Whitebox Art Center was founded in 1998. Within its first two years, Whitebox was nominated for “Best Group Show” by the International Art Critics Association for Plural Speech and for a survey of Viennese Actionists, Günter Brus and Hermann Nitsch. During its first decade, Whitebox Art Center built a reputation for producing thought-provoking exhibitions and initiatives that fostered engagement among a broad audience, including neighborhood low-income housing communities and the Bayview Women’s Prison.

The organization of Whitebox is at a pivotal transitional stage; building upon its sixteen year legacy of presenting contemporary art in the spirit of the avante-garde, Whitebox is expanding its mission to incorporate an annual international photography festival and yearlong salon series, increasing sustained support and exposure for artists.
