The WhiteBoxPainters are a group of performance artists based in Milwaukee, WI. The group has taken on various configurations throughout its history but is currently composed of Brent Budsberg, Shana McCaw, Harvey Opgenorth, and Mark Escribano. Clad in white painter’s coveralls marked with the WBP logo, the performers take on the role of contractors or city workers, intentionally blurring the lines between public performance and the mundane and everyday sight of municipal labor. The white box has come to symbolize both the basic building block of our physical surroundings as well as a challenge to the traditional white box of the art gallery.
