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.

The Heart of Contemporary Art is at Whitespace Collection

Elayne and Marvin Mordes continue to give a gift of contemporary art to the community through their Whitespace Collection.  While visiting Whitespace one connects with the newest contemporary artists world-wide.  The Mordes’ have their fingers on the pulse of what is emerging in the field. Their bus trips to Miami (you can still sign up for the second and third dates) offer a bird’s eye view of this domain.  With changing exhibits throughout “season”, Whitespace Collection is a must for the art lover.

A WAKE OF VULTURES

Maximilion Toth

This exhibition of large-scale paintings and wall drawings by artist Maximilian Toth is shown alongside two films done in collaboration with artist Sarah Lasley.  The work explores the unapologetic  assertion of youth in the harsh face of mortality.

The primal urges of Toth’s line based figures fuel their games of conquest, loyalty, power, and pecking order. Each individual seeks their place within the group as well as in the world. The walls depict King of the Raft, a battle fought to be ruler of a floating,  bird-shit-covered, putting-green kingdom. A child king’s rule is retained only until they are thrown over into the surrounding waters. The new ruler revels in their status, until they too are overthrown and the struggle for power continues. Whether on land or at sea the scavengers engage in snow ball brawls, roman candle battles, and skirmishes around a blazing bonfire. They move in a writhing pack, roles and authority shifting, leaders crowned, usurped, swallowed, and replaced. In a world where games are played in an attempt to defy limitations, a raft becomes a kingdom and a snow fall is a war cry.

 

Toth’s paintings of initiation are brought to live action in the films War Party and Pumpkins. While the paintings concentrate on youth’s declaration, the films portray the realization that vitality is fleeting and the body is fragile. In light of this truth, Toth’s subjects find all the more reason to celebrate.

EENA’s Formula:  Feminine Bread Sculptures

– EENA is a female name and means “Renewing”. Every bread sculpture has it root in its own name:  Marl-eena, Yasm-eena, Hel-eena……
– EENA is also the short form for “European Emergency Number Association”.  My EENA will save and make safe all who call on her…  the feminine savior!
– Formula: something magical on the way to find the right combination between different essences,to find solutions, to win, to be healed, to love, to read signs in daily life.
EENA will find it. She tries and tries.  EENA : Goddess or witch!!!
