White Cube Gallery

White Cube Gallery has many incarnations, as it was first opened in Duke Street in London's West End district, where director Jay Jopling (a former student of Eton and son of a conservative MP), had a strict rule that each artist could only be exhibited once. The gallery's reputation grew largely due to its exhibitions of the often-controversial Young British Artists, a group, which has since become notorious for its celebrity members such as Tracy Emin and Damien Hirst. 

 

As White Cube's popularity grew it moved to Hoxton Square in 2000, to be at the heart of East London's prolific arts scene and the elegant, and decidedly cubic, gallery, designed by MRJ Rundell & Associates, has become one of the most famous and respected spaces in the area. It is also still popular with the YBA group of artists who still show their work there from time to time, a sign that the rule of artists being exhibited once has been abolished, although many new artists and international artists are awarded shows here. 

 

True to its name, the gallery maintains a minimalist aesthetic in its 250 metres squared exhibition space, ensuring that the clean white walls inspire the viewer to focus on the art and nothing else. However, this stylistic choice has come under much criticism from industry insiders. The Stuckist group stated that they were 'opposed to the sterility of the white wall gallery system' and opened up a gallery close by with multi-coloured walls and in another protest, dressed up as clowns and gifted a coffin to the gallery with the legend 'the death of conceptual art' inscribed on it. This may all seem to be a rather childish display of creative differences, but even respected art dealer Charles Saatchi has weighed in on the debate stating that the White Cube was a 'time warp'.

 

Whatever the consensus, the gallery continues to show some of the most cutting edge art in London, with a roster of renowned artists such as Jake and Dinos Chapman, Sam Taylor Wood (who was once married to the gallery owner), Anselm Kiefer and Gabriel Orozco. Always chasing the new frontiers of London's art scene, White Cube have also opened a new gallery in Bermondsey, which promises to be just as respected, however the Hoxton space is held dear in many of the city's art aficionados and is well worth a visit. If staying in the area, the Thistle City in nearby Barbican offers comfortable modern accommodation and Citadines Apart Hotel offers apartment units and rooms for reasonable rates. Andaz in Liverpool Street offers suitably artistic accommodation and Malmaison have very stylishly appointed rooms.
