Black Cube is a nonprofit, experimental art museum that operates nomadically. Without the traditional boundaries of a physical building, Black Cube exists primarily through partnering with our artist fellows to commission pop up art experiences. At Black Cube, we see ourselves as an unconventional museum pursuing the most effective ways to engage audiences while supporting individual artists with critical professional guidance.
Black Cube is a nonprofit, experimental art museum that goes beyond white museum and gallery walls to advance artists’ self-sufficiency and inspire people to discover and appreciate contemporary art.
At Black Cube, we believe that freedom of expression is essential to the arts. We strongly support our Artist Fellows in their endeavors to produce ambitious projects that push the boundaries of art-making. While Black Cube remains neutral in its approach, our programs encourage artists to investigate, experiment, and question, while maintaining ideals of diversity and inclusivity. We believe that all deserve access to culture, which is critical to a healthy and democratic society.
Unlike stationary museums marked primarily by their architecture, Black Cube has no permanent exhibition space or collection. We prefer to be defined by the art and artists (known as fellows) that we present and support. We begin with the ideas of our artist fellows and craft customize each art experience based on their thoughts and concept.
Founded in 2015 by artist and philanthropist, Laura Merage, the institution upholds the belief that art is an essential part of a vibrant, just, and healthy society.
Black Cube’s programs are created to benefit artists and engage audiences across the globe. Our experimental exhibitions always begin with artists’ ideas and are intended to support ambitious projects that further the artists’ practice. Black Cube’s programs provide diverse audiences with unique opportunities to experience newly commissioned contemporary art, outside of white museum and gallery walls.learn more
