It can take a long time to get established in the world of art. Van Gogh sadly was not recognised for his genius until after he passed away. For an art gallery to have built up a worldwide reputation in just four years is extraordinary. In that time, Maddox have opened three galleries in London, and one each in Los Angeles and Gstaad.
$This winter season, the luxury contemporary art space – conveniently located on Promenade 7 – will host an exhibition of works by American conceptual artist Mel Bochner. Blah, Blah, Blah begins on 19 December and is open to the public until 15 January 2020. The exhibition, the first time the artist has presented in Switzerland in over a decade, is a showcase of pieces from Bochner’s popular thesaurus painting series, which consists of lists of synonyms displayed in rainbow-coloured palettes, often featuring a single word repeated in painterly capital letters as seen in his pioneering piece Blah, Blah, Blah (2008), after which the exhibition is named.
Throughout 2019, the team at Maddox Gallery have worked directly with Mel Bochner and his studio to curate a show of 24 quintessential paintings of which 14 will be unveiled at Maddox Gallery’s Gstaad for the first time.
