Summer ’97, one of the artworks by Madelynn Mae Green has been acquired by the Government Art collection. Madelynn is one of the 12 young artists included in the gallery exhibition ‘Figurative NOW’. The painting is now exhibited at the South London gallery until the 24thFebruary 2019, as part of the Bloomberg New Contemporaries exhibition. The artwork explores themes of family, memory and domesticity, topics that are familiar and close to Madelynn.
Being bought by the Government Art collection is an ambitious achievement for the young artist. In fact, the collection displays artworks in the UK government buildings around the globe, in order to promote international artists and to actively contribute to cultural diplomacy. The works acquired by the Government Art collection are carefully chosen by an Advisory Committee, which reunites important figures of the art world, such as the directors of the National Gallery, National Portrait Gallery, Tate Britain and Yorkshire Sculpture Park. The collection, started in 1898, has now reached 14,000 art pieces from the XVI century to contemporary works.
