PRESS RELEASE

 

 

Opening reception with the artist, Friday, June 28, 2013, from 5:00 – 8:00 pm.

Corbett vs. Dempsey presents Cellar Door, a special installation created for the West Wing by Los Angeles-based artist Matt Nichols.  Nichols intervenes in the architecture of the gallery, interposing a faux wall and introducing wooden sculptural objects (both leaning and free-standing) to the intimate space, calling to mind the perverse spirit of Richard Artschwager.
