Posted on Saturday, December 12 2015 03:38:00 PM in News by Beth Swanson
Whitespace is the private contemporary art museum and gallery exhibition space and loft-style home of Elayne and ( Marvin-obm) Mordes located in West Palm Beach. The Mordes’ have been collecting Contemporary Art for over 30 years and have a unique European approach to their collection. One of the strengths of the collection is the consistency of vision that it exhibits and, in addition, has also been characterized by its enthusiasm and focus. Whitespace has approximately 8000 square feet of exhibition space which has partial permanent programming and a changing project space entitled “Whitebox”, which has curated exhibitions which meet a high level of competency, vision and creativity. This is the only venue of this type in this area. We consider it an honor to establish a growing audience of Contemporary Art “Lovers”!!
The mission of Whitespace is to expand and introduce the viewer to current trends in contemporary art by creating international exhibitions by major mid-career contemporary artists using various mediums: including painting, sculpture, photography, drawing and video. Whitespace is open from November through April of each year and has approximately 800 visitors that access our space through private tours, schools, fundraising events, and public viewing days.
The goal of Whitespace is to fund a granting program for the Arts and Art Education in Palm Beach County through Community Foundation.
