An exhibition of works brought together through a shared aesthetic choice, one that attempts to study our relationship with the colour white and the significance, that such a simple distinction can retain. Within the gallery, white creates an immersive space away from mundane distractions, that promotes clear vision and thought. As a homage to the white cube space 'An Arrangement in White' makes more room for this intellectual freedom.
There has been no colour whose history has been as fluid and contradictory as that of the colour white. As an absolute; white has been both representative of purity, the sublime & divinity as well as oppression & its wholesale ideological misuse in fascism. The 'Moral White' was thought capable by many to naturally elicit social reform, through its omnipresence in public and domestic settings, as a complete negation of decadent bourgeois decoration.
