White Columns is proud to present “Update” an exhibition of recent
works by eleven artists who have participated in White Columns programs
during the past three years.
The current “Update” exhibition was informed by White Columns’ annual
“Update” exhibition series which ran for many years beginning in the
mid 1980s. The original “Update” exhibitions provided an opportunity
for White Columns to re-privilege and re-contextualize the work of
artists who had received significant support and early exposure at the
gallery. The current “Update” exhibition brings together new works –
produced in the past year – by artists who showed at White Columns
between 2005 and 2007. (In most cases their initial show at White
