"Between the Black Box and the White Cube" is the first book to tell the story of the postwar expanded cinema that would inspire the now ubiquitous presence of the moving image in contemporary art. In the 1950s and 1960s, the rise of television caused movie theaters to lose their monopoly over the moving image. Andrew V. Uroskie argues that it was this cultural displacement, rather than any formal or technological innovation, that lay at the origins of the expanded cinema. As the idea of cinema became unchained from the familiarity of the cinematic theater, postwar artists began to reimagine the nature and possibilities of the moving image for contemporary art. Facilitated by newly inexpensive film and video technologies, Uroskie explains, their work resulted in a curious and consequential new home for cinema between the movie theater's "black box" and the art gallery's "white cube".
