Exhibiting the White Cube

In 1976, the term white cube was coined by artist and art critic Brian O'Doherty to designate a scenic layout that aims to neutralize the exhibition space by covering its walls with matte white paint and installing a homogeneous lighting system. Since then, this scenic layout has become widely accepted and acts as tacit norm in the artworld. This book proposes three essays on this subject, as well as six series of drawings that look at the relationships that works of art are likely to have with the exhibition space.
