A Nomadic Art Museum: Black Cube 2015–2020 is an expansive hardcover monograph that celebrates groundbreaking, site-specific artworks produced by Black Cube from 2015 to 2020. Operating nomadically as a traveling contemporary art museum, the book highlights the nonprofit organization’s five-year journey across the United States and Europe producing situational art projects in unusual spaces (abandoned bus terminals, gold mining towns, iconic modernist chapels, and even cars).
Published by Black Cube, the monograph comprises 320 pages of photo documentation, behind-the-scenes images, and in-depth text, as well as contributions by the institution’s Founder, Laura Merage, Chief Curator, Cortney Lane Stell, and accomplished writers Angella d’Avignon and Paddy Johnson. Elegantly designed, this visual compendium of more than 80 artists and 35 site-specific projects explores art in unexpected settings outside of conventional gallery spaces. Nearly all of the artworks showcased within the book no longer exist in the public sphere. As such, A Nomadic Art Museum: Black Cube 2015–2020 serves as a time capsule of temporary, ambitious, and experimental site-specific art projects realized during the organization’s first five years.
