White Cube: Cross-Cultural Collaboration
By Isabelle Kuo
Founded in 1993, White Cube had been an important driving force for the early careers of a group of YBAs (Young British Artists) in the 1990s. Antony Gormley, Damien Hirst, and Tracey Emin were among the gallery's partnered artists who had helped shape the London contemporary art scene. White Cube is now a leading contemporary art institution and represents prominent artists worldwide, including Anselm Kiefer, Georg Baselitz, Mona Hatoum, Jeff Wall, Doris Salcedo, Liu Wei, and Park Seo-Bo.
The year of 2018 marks White Cube's 25th anniversary, and the gallery's Hong Kong space will soon celebrate its 7th birthday in March 2019. "White Cube is committed to facilitating cross-cultural exchange between the East and the West, and is extremely proud of what we have achieved in Hong Kong and in Asia," said Laura Zhou, White Cube's Director of Asia, "Our Hong Kong space has produced about 30 exhibitions, and we look forward to more collaboration with other institutions in the region. It is our goal to feature more Asian artists in our London and Asia exhibitions, and we look forward to introducing the Inside the White Cube initiative to Hong Kong to establish new connections with artists in Asia."
As an exhibitor at Taipei Dangdai, Zhou recognizes Asian collectors' passion and knowledge in a diverse range of art. She aims to showcase a collection of mixed-media pieces by White Cube's represented artists as well as other partnered artists. Represented at the fair are significant YBA figures Damien Hirst and Antony Gormley, socially-engaged American installation artist Theaster Gates, prominent British painter and abstract filmmaker Sarah Morris, and the winner of the 2017 Hiroshima Art Prize Mona Hatoum.
