Since its inception in 2000, the Six Feet Under series has offered viewers a different vantage point into the White Box space, a unique perspective of its subterranean architecture and alternative direction. By closing the doors and installing work that can only be viewed through the 26th Street window, passersby are able to see the space as an excavated site, a submerged container beneath the sidewalk and understand White Box as an "underground" and insurgent agent operating within the commercial art environment of Chelsea.

Tear me Up Tear me Down is the fourth installment of the series and will occur in the midst of the reconstruction of the building that houses the gallery. The exhibition will introduce the idea of the "cover-up," the act of concealment, and the process of change through destruction and remaking. As a mask and mirror of the disarray of reconstruction behind the façade, the exhibition will screen viewers from what lies beneath. The window becomes a stage and the artists' installations the ruse.

Six galleries were asked to select six artists each of whom will create a six-day installation just inside the window at White Box. These artists will work with the curators to actualize and integrate their work within the on-going process of the building's reconstruction. As each artist tears down the old installation to put up a new one, the audience is invited to witness the process. Tear me Up Tear me Down examines the issues surrounding renewal both literally and figuratively and puts into perspective the reality of change.
