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

Sunday, October 20th, 2019

Catherine Testorf is Founder and Director of InSight Artspace, a Westchester-based interactive art business established in 2018. She was previously Co-Founder of Sohotel Artspace Gallery, where she introduced international practitioners to the New York art scene. Catherine founded the business after 10 years in Switzerland’s financial industry, where she grew to appreciate art not only as an investment but also as a bridge to cultures around the world. www.insightartspace.com

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. With bold choices to showcase at pop-up fairs and alternate venues such as restaurants and spas, InSight Artspace aims to stimulate new conversations and promote art as an essential component of life. 

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

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.
