Black Cube

A Nomadic Art MuseumBlack-Cube_Animated-Icon-Black-01-1

Black Cube is a nonprofit, nomadic art museum headquartered in Colorado. By operating outside of traditional museum confines, we endeavor to reach diverse audiences across the globe while supporting artists’ sustainability. At our core, we stimulate the public realm with ambitious, experimental, and engaging contemporary art that seeks to inspire. Founded in 2015 by artist and philanthropist, Laura Merage, the institution upholds the belief that art is an essential part of a vibrant, just, and healthy society.​

The Traditional Idea of a Museum On Its Head

Unlike stationary museums marked primarily by their architecture, Black Cube has no permanent exhibition space or collection. We prefer to be defined by the art and artists (known as fellows) that we present and support. We begin with the ideas of our artist fellows and craft customize each art experience based on their thoughts and concept.

Nomadicism

Without the traditional boundaries of a physical building, Black Cube exists primarily through partnering with artists to commission pop-up art experiences. Black Cube is an innovative, unconventional museum pursuing the most effective ways to engage audiences

Our Mission 

Black Cube is a nonprofit, experimental art museum that goes beyond white museum and gallery walls to advance artists’ self-sufficiency and inspire people to discover and appreciate contemporary art.

Our Approach

We believe that freedom of expression is essential to the arts. We strongly support our Artist Fellows in their endeavors to produce ambitious projects that push the boundaries of art-making. Our programs encourage artists to investigate, experiment, and question, while maintaining ideals of diversity and inclusivity. We believe that all deserve access to culture, which is critical to a healthy and democratic society.
