"Who Needs a White Cube These Days?" by Roberta Smith; 2006

Roberta Smith discusses how various groups and gallery owners have found different ways of approaching the gallery that contrasts the traditional "white cube." She explains that some spaces are more transparent, while others do not sell work at all. In the end, she explains that although many have approached the gallery differently, these examples do not usually survive for very long.

Is there something wrong with the traditional gallery space?

What does it mean for an already prominent gallery owner to create a new alternative space?

Is it important for galleries to be transparent?
