Deconstructing the White Cube - 2017

An analysis and critique of site through the deconstruction of the white cube. This piece explores the site of art in relation to its institutional frame challenging the supposed neutrality of the white cube. Four walls are constructed out of steel studs, joint compound on cardboard, with detailing with oil pastels. The measurements of the walls are based on the dimensions of a critique space at the Rhode Island School of Design.

In a performance, walls are erected and then toppled over like dominos. Post performance, the walls were distributed throughout the streets of Providence RI through the gesture of a guerrilla installation where graffiti artists were given the space to express their work upon them.
