With few words and gorgeous style, a cartoonist takes aim at the hypocrisies of the art world "White Cube" is the Belgian cartoonist and illustrator Brecht Vandenbroucke's debut book, a collection of mostly wordless strips that follow a pair of pink-faced twins as they attempt to understand contemporary art and the gallery world. Their reactions to the art they encounter are frequently comedic, as they paint over Pablo Picasso's famous mural "Guernica," and re-create a pixelated version of Edvard Munch's "The Scream" after receiving one too many e-mails. Lushly painted, these irreverent strips poke fun at the staid, often smug art world, offering an absurdist view on the institutions of that world--questioning what constitutes art and what doesn't, as well as how we decide what goes on the walls of the gallery and what doesn't. Vandenbroucke's distinctive work blends the highbrow with the low, drawing equally from Gordon Matta-Clark's site-specific artwork and the Three Stooges' slapstick timing. With a knowing wink at the reader, Vandenbroucke continuously uncovers something to laugh about in the stuffiness and pretentiousness of the art world.

Review:

"["White Cube "is] one of the best books we've seen all year . . . Following two pink-faced men . . . as they trot gleefully into artistic establishments and deal with contemporary art in a naive yet scathing way, this [book] is both hilarious and . . . genius." --"It's Nice That""Vandenbroucke's paintings are full of humor and irreverence." --"Juxtapoz"
