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.

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.
