White Cube, Mason’s Yard opened in September 2006. It is located off Duke Street, St. James's, home of the original White Cube gallery, on a site that was previously an electricity sub-station. Also designed by MRJ Rundell & Associates it is the first free-standing building to be built in the St James's area for more than 30 years. The building houses a main, basement floor gallery which is a naturally lit, double-height space with a second gallery on street level providing 5000 ft² of exhibition space. White Cube, Mason’s Yard continues with an international, high profile programme of exhibitions and was launched with an inaugural exhibition by Gabriel Orozco.

Virginia Overton

  • 16 January — 14 March 2015 *on now

White Cube Mason’s Yard is pleased to present an exhibition of new work by American artist Virginia Overton, her first in the UK. For this exhibition Overton has worked with the gallery space, creating new, site-responsive works using locally sourced, recycled materials that continue her playful use and investigation of different materials.

Marked by a minimal and elegant economy, Overton’s large-scale sculptures and installations are intuitive and adaptable, focusing on volume and space and the inherent physicality of their component parts. Her process is a journey of trial and error whereby works are mostly created on site. Overton uses materials more commonly associated with building or construction, such as wood, metal, fluorescent lighting, mirrored acrylic, lumber, rope and cement. These, as well as appropriated readymades such as sandbags, chairs, ladders or pipes, which often obstruct and bisect the space, are used to highlight the specific dynamics and architectural motifs or to alter the space’s layout and flow.
