The white cube — it’s a vision of the gallery museum that has dominated thinking and practice in the art world for decades. Beyond the Box: Diverging Curatorial Practices is a collection of essays by leading Canadian and international curators and artists that explores regions of practice outside this "cube," delving into contemporary challenges to traditional ideas about art and curating.
With four main topics of inquiry — Publications, New Media, Biennials, and Art Museums Today — Beyond the Box captures groundbreaking thinking and writing from some of the world’s top curator’s and artists. It exposes the passion, creativity, and determination behind successes such as the publications of the Hoopoe-Curatorial, and installations like The Universal Lab, as well as critical commentary documenting the collapse of the 2000 São Paulo Biennial.
The third in a series of books about curatorship published by the Banff Centre Press in association with the Walter Phillps Gallery and the Banff International Curatorial Institute, Beyond the Box will be a touchstone for artists and curators alike.
