The Crystal Land
@ White Cube 
Bermondsey 


Ice is the medium
most alien to organic
life, a considerable
accumulation of it
completely disrupts
the normal course
of processes in the
biosphere.
” 

The exhibition:
 
Is New York-based 
Josiah McElheny's 4th
solo with White Cube
,
narrating 
a decade of
the artist’s efforts to
visualise alternative
histories of Modernism, 
featuring various media
including sculpture, film,
painting, installation,
photograms and
posters. 

(3) sections: 
McElheny divides the 
gallery into distinct 
spaces, each themed 
around inspiring
individuals; 
· Robert Smithson 
· Paul Scheerbart 
· David H Weinberg 

McElheny’s
The Crystal Land
asserts the view that
‘reconstructing history’
can be a creative
process itself, and
that aesthetics are
always political.
