Event Details

Be first to view WHITE. Sip specialty cocktails, taste inventive hors d’oeuvres, and mingle with other art lovers.

Often seen as neutral, as background, or even as the absence of color, the color white emerges time and time again as a coconspirator in some of the most revolutionary works of art of the modern and contemporary period, beginning with one masterpiece of the modern avant-garde—Kazimir Malevich’s iconic painting, White on White (1918). Nearly a century after this Suprematist masterpiece was created, MOCA Jacksonville’s WHITE exhibition charts the pivotal role of this under-explored protagonist in the making of contemporary art history. The exhibition focuses on ten iconic works of art made between 1950 and today to cast a spotlight on white’s role as inspiration, color, material, and even conceptual premise in objects spanning diverse media such as painting, photography, sculpture, and installation.
