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.
