As of fall 2012, The White House Studio Project is now under new management.
This website and blog will act as a database of documentation of the old White House, it’s projects and happenings. The information listed on this site is now out of date and just left as a relic to the old days.
On behalf of the old board of directors I’d like to thank everyone who has participated, contributed and attended the White House over the past 3 years. Thank you for making it some of the best years of my life.
Here’s to the future.
Co-Founder of the White House Board of Directors, 2008-2012

Ex-White-House-board member Vanessa Rieger is curating Ghost Hole again and this year it is on Toronto Island! Showcasing over 30+ artists, some of them being White House members, and other local talents, transforming the Artscape Gibraltar Point Public school for one night only!!!
For this one-day only event, the school will come to life, or rather, rise back from the dead. Artists will act as necromancers and use their power of art, installation, sound, video and performance to activate the space and open gateways into strange new worlds! Some things you may encounter on your visit to Ghost Hole IV: Sculptures made by poltergeists, a haunted outhouse, bodies on the beach, boobie traps in the woods, ghostly children under the floorboards, altered states of reality, floating apparitions and historical building tours led by ghostly faculty.
Family friendly between 2pm – 6pm,
but once the sun goes down things get a lot darker!
Performances by Maylee Todd (Maloo), JAL, Processor, Barbara, Sunken Skulls, Dune Buddies and comedy by Nick Flanagan.
Tickets on sale now @ soundscapes! 12$

This Friday October 5th,
the White House will be holding a silent auction to help pay off our debts.
The whitehouse is facing an outstanding property tax+hydro bill debt of $3800.
Times are chaging and a lot of original members are moving on and would like to leave the project debt free. Many have used the whitehouse over the years for a multitude of purposes and its been really great. I would love everyone to come together now to celebrate it by helping raise funds to end the project on a positive note.
Auction starts at 7pm

Alexander Hryshko and White House Studio member Nathaniel Addison present “Sadistic Glam” -’94, a sardonic investigation of ruin and redundancy uncovered through photographs, bootleg VHS tapes, shoot interviews and cheap souvenirs. Evidence of real pain and personal tragedy are documented and arranged to present an alternate perspective on celebrity and spectacle from behind the scenes of professional wrestling.
Displayed using obsolete technologies that signify the temporary highs experienced by pro wrestlers, the collection chronicles a mainstreaming of violence and corruption that has accelerated over the last 30 years of the oldest sport in the world. “Sadistic Glam” -’94 confronts the youths’ naive adoration with brutal truths and disturbing personalities, attempting to reconcile the difference.
Bands start around 11.
