This central sister to the Hoxton original hosted Tracey Emin’s first exhibition in five years, ‘Those who suffer Love’, in 2009. Together with the massively publicised Damien Hirst ‘For the Love of God’ exhibition two years before, it brought back some of the publicity for the (now not-so-young) Young British Artists (YBAs). Housed in Mason’s Yard, a traditional courtyard with brick houses and an old pub, the White Cube looks like an ice block – white, straight-lined and angular. The two contrasting styles work well together and the courtyard often serves as a garden for the gallery on popular opening nights.
