The white walls of the institutional art gallery try so hard to be neutral in order to isolate the artwork in the eyes of the viewer. "The White Cube Goes Through Puberty" criticizes the definition of the white cube as an artificial space. As hard as it tries, it cannot separate itself from the messiness of human existence.
The wall appears to be growing acne. The white cube gallery space is no longer interpreted as a pure, clean, and innocent space. The next stage in its development is puberty. And with puberty comes acne.
