White Columns is New York’s oldest alternative art space. It was founded in 1970 by a group of artists including Jeffrey Lew and Gordon Matta-Clark as an experimental platform for art. White Columns presents an ongoing program of exhibitions, projects, talks, screenings, and events. Additionally, it has a record label ‘The Sound of White Columns’ that releases vinyl-only recordings by artist-performers. The organization is a consistently vital supporter of emerging and under-recognized artists, especially those with disabilities and has endeavored to make the art world more inclusive and diverse.
Creative Capital’s mission is to fund artists in the creation of groundbreaking new work in the visual arts, performing arts, literature, film, technology, and multidisciplinary practices, including socially-engaged work in all forms
