White Columns was founded in 1970 by a group of artists, including Jeffrey Lew and Gordon Matta-Clark, as an experimental platform for art. Originally located in SoHo (and known as the 112 Workshop/112 Greene Street), the organization was renamed White Columns when it moved to Spring Street in 1980. In 1991 White Columns moved to Christopher Street in the West Village, and in 1998 the gallery relocated to the borders of the West Village and Meat Packing District. In April 2018, White Columns re-opened in a new location at 91 Horatio Street adjacent to the new Whitney Museum of American Art and The High-Line.

White Columns presents an ongoing program of exhibitions, projects, talks, screenings, and events. Additionally, it has a record label ‘The Sound of White Columns’ that releases vinyl-only recordings by artist-performers. White Columns is a not-for-profit gallery which is open to the public, free-of-charge, eleven months per year.

White Columns provides support to artists who have yet to benefit from wider critical, curatorial or commercial attention, such as Louise Bourgeois, Harmony Hammond, Sonic Youth, David Wojnarowicz, Felix Gonzalez-Torres, Andres Serrano, Fred Wilson, ACT-UP, Lorna Simpson, and Glenn Ligon.
