Neal White is a visual artist whose work addresses the relationship between arts role in knowledge making and broader cultural, social and environmental issues. His work draws on his background working across disciplines, within scientific and cultural institutions, and through his interest in working with leading experimental and artist-led organisations as well as working on commissions with established international curators, museums and archives.
Neal is director of Office of Experiments (2004 - with Steve Rowell). He collaborates on many projects with the Irish artist, Tina O’Connell and is currently leading the Deep Field Project based at CREAM at University of Westminster, where he has worked as a Professor in Art / Research and co-Directed CREAM, since 2017.
He was appointed to the Board of O+I (established by Barbara Steveni and John Latham as part of Artist Placement Group legacy) between 2007-09. This led to his further role as an initiator of the Incidental Unit in 2017.
Formerly, he co-founded one of the UK first art and technology collectives - Soda, in 1997 (to 2001).
