Beyond the White Cube

This half-day symposium uses Paul Coldwell’s current exhibition at the Freud Museum, Temporarily Accessioned: Freud’s Coat Revisited as a starting point to explore artistic interventions inside and outside the Freud Museum. The Freud Museum is the antithesis to the concept of ‘the white cube’, a space stripped of references wherein artworks can be viewed without distraction. Here the artist has to fight for space and compete with an environment not only rich in material possessions, but also in the stories that it fosters. This symposium considers ways that artists and curators have approached this challenge and how increasingly, digital media has become part of an artist’s studio practice.
