Beyond the White Box: an interview with Catherine Testorf, Founder and Director of InSight Artspace

Sunday, October 20th, 2019

She was previously Co-Founder of Sohotel Artspace Gallery, where she introduced international practitioners to the New York art scene.

InSight Artspace was founded on the mission of foregrounding the personal journeys of contemporary artists while fostering a creative and intimate dialogue around their work. The business primarily represents women artists. Bringing together practitioners, collectors and visitors, the business prides itself in ensuring accessibility to art to people from all walks of life.

Stephanie Yeap spoke with Catherine via video call between London and New York City…

  1. 1. Describe your business in 5 words:

The phrase “outside the white box format” really corresponds to what I currently do at InSight Artspace, my interactive gallery. And what I mean by the white box is the traditional gallery model that never changes. I believe people have to see art in different perspectives in order to enrich their lives and you can’t achieve that with the same old format.
