One may ask: "What is white cube?" White Cube is much more than a typical commercial gallery - it belongs to the public. The gallery was born out of unique vision of 29-year-old Jay Jopling, back in 1993, and it aquired its reputation by showcasing Young British Artists such as Tracey Emin, Damian Hirst and Antony Gormley.  White Cube started off as a small square room, hence its name, in Duke Street (a traditional art-dealing street in the West End). Today the gallery occupies several locaitons in Central London as well as Hong Kong and Sao Paulo.

The gallery in  Mason's Yard has hosted a wide range of exhibitions by international artists including Andreas Gursky, Georg Baselitz, Jeff Wall, Anselm Kiefer, Robert Irwin and Miroslaw Balka. 

The second gallery in Bermondsey, located in a renovated industrial building from the 1970's over 5440 square meters in size, has  three major exhibition spaces as well as private viewing rooms, office space, a warehouse, an auditorium and a bookshop. Since its inception, the building has hosted a variety of important exhibitions such as the first UK showing of work by American artist Theaster Gates, a comprehensive retrospective of prints by Chuck Close and the largest presentation of Anselm Kiefer work's ever staged in London.
