White Space Gallery in London was founded in 2001. We are the only gallery in London and in the West to show the works of many of artists we represent, making us an important center for exhibition and scholarship on major artists from the late twentieth century and the contemporary era.
We maintain a strong emphasis on producing exhibition catalogues and texts on the work we exhibit and regularly commission articles for our publications. In addition we have organized many events and performances by leading artists such as Yuri Albert, Gluklya (Pershina Yakimanskaya), Vitaly Komar, Oleg Kulik, Boris Mikhailov, Gosha Ostretsov, Antanas Sutkus, Vladimir Tarasov and others.
