About Whitespace:


Whitespace is the private contemporary art exhibition space and loft-style home of Elayne and Marvin 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 December through April of each year.   The goal of Whitespace is to fund a granting program for the Arts and Art Education in Palm Beach County through Community Foundation.



This season Whitespace is proud to announce the 6th season of “Whitebox”, an artist’s project space for emerging and mid-career international artists.  Exhibiting this season are artists involved with cutting edge work using film, video and internet as their medium.  In addition, Whitespace in implementing a program of Art Tours to Miami, a boxed lunch and learn program with artists as speakers, two open events to allow for visits to our private home without a group tour and Outside the Box2 – a juried biennale outdoor sculpture exhibition with approximately 25 artists.  

Whitespace also has a small museum shop – WhitePackage, with unique host & hostess gifts and décor designed by international artists, architects and design personalities.
