White Cube is pleased to present ‘Hold Me, Hold Me, Hold Me’ by Theaster Gates, the artist’s first solo exhibition at White Cube New York, located at 1002 Madison Avenue.
The title of the exhibition honours the 1970s duet ‘Be Real Black For Me’ by Donny Hathaway and Roberta Flack. Drawing from the echoed repetition of the phrase ‘hold me’ midway through the song, Gates explores the connections between music, composition, and the complex interactions between artistry and mental health, acknowledging the truth of Hathaway’s own profound struggles with fame and creative transmission during his lifetime.
White Cube and Gagosian will host an exclusive screening of ANSELM at the IFC Center in New York this November. The screening will take place on 28 November, with only a limited number of spaces available.
‘Lovers Grave’ is the inaugural solo exhibition at White Cube’s New York gallery at 1002 Madison Avenue. Tracey Emin’s (b. 1963, London) first show in the city in almost 8 years brings together new paintings and works on paper completed in her studios in London and Margate, UK. Opening November 4th.
White Cube is pleased to announce the opening of its first permanent New York gallery and its inaugural exhibition Chopped & Screwed, on view October 3 – 28, 2023. White Cube New York is located on the Upper East Side at 1002 Madison Avenue between 77th and 78th and is housed in a landmark building and former bank built for the Fulton Trust Company in 1930. Retaining many of its original exterior features, including a large flagpole and stone bust of the bank’s founder Robert Fulton on the top of the building, the interior has been fully renovated to accommodate three levels of exhibition space and private viewing rooms spanning over 8,000 square feet.
The inaugural exhibition, Chopped & Screwed, is curated by Courtney Willis Blair (Senior Director, US), and considers the use of sourcing and distortion in contemporary art to resist established systems of power and value.
