Established by German-American art collector Artur Walther, the Walther Collection opened in June 2010 in Neu-Ulm/Burlafingen, Germany. The Walther Collection Project Space opened in New York City in April 2011. The Walther Collection incorporates works across regions, periods, and artistic sensibilities, giving particular focus to artists and photographers working in Asia and Africa.
The Walther Collection's main exhibition venue is a four-building museum compound in Neu Ulm/Burlafingen, Germany. The principal buildings – the White Box, Green House, and Black House – provide gallery space for the annual exhibition program. A fourth building on the campus accommodates administrative offices and a library. Designed by the Ulm-based architectural firm Braunger Wörtz, the White Box is a light-filled, three story minimalist structure that houses the Walther Collection's main galleries, and hosts thematic exhibitions and commissioned projects. The Green House, a former residential home, is used for small-format works. The Black House, a bungalow-style structure, is used for the presentation of serial, performance, and conceptual-style photography.
