MaddocksBrown provided a grant to the Los Angeles County Museum of Art to purchase a new sculpture by renown contemporary artist Robert Therrien. The work — entitled “No title (room, panic doors)” — was seen by MaddocksBrown chairman Linda Brown at its first public exhibition at the Austin Contemporary Museum of Art. It will be unveiled to the public in 2018.
“[No title (room, panic doors)] transports the viewer out of the gallery and into a new narrative situation, prompting connections between material details and their subconscious associations. By making use of everyday things that are often overlooked, Therrien situates the viewer in familiar territory, then allows the objects to demand reassessment as instruments of subjectivity and of consciousness itself.” –Gagosian Gallery Press Release, March 2017
