White Cube Gallery London.
White Cube is a Gallery in London...that has in my opinion...a cynical approach to art and the humanity within art...Yet it has enormous International economic power...There have been a few sparks ...Tracey Emin is one ...but mostly it lacks everything that is about creativity. Yes...I DARE say it !...after years of trying to find something there...
