About White Box
Situated at 26 Princes Street, White Box is a white-walled window gallery in the front of the Fringe HQ office. The highly visible street-facing window is right next to the Octagon and attracts hundreds of people daily who are simply walking by.
In keeping with the inclusive kaupapa of Dunedin Fringe, the core aim of White Box is to support and showcase a diverse range of engaging visual arts projects in an accessible environment. This provides a chance for arts practitioners, students, writers, curators and community projects to present work free from commercial and criterion restraints. As well as offering an opportunity to a variety of local artists, White Box intends to break through preconceived ideas of what art is, demonstrating to the public the diversity of work that can fall under the label ‘visual art.’
Much like the Fringe Festival, White Box’s key purpose is to get people excited and involved with art through its highly public location, and to support the work of a range of artists.
The Dunedin Fringe Festival is the world’s southernmost festival of its kind. Initiated in 2000, Dunedin Fringe aims to bring experimental contemporary art to a wider audience and to support the work of emerging artists. Dunedin Fringe is an annual event which happens every March timed to coincide with other fringe festivals in New Zealand and Australia.
