Taking place now until January 13 at the Carnegie Museum of Art, the ‘White Cube, Green Maze: New Art Landscapes’ exhibition consists of a worldwide survey of art sites that break open the “white cube” gallery space. These sites typically mix old and new, featuring collaborative plans by several designers and encouraging exploration outdoors as a new type of museum is emerging — one that fuses inventive architecture and landscape design with radical conceptual and installation art. More images and information on the exhibition after the break.
