LOS ANGELES, Jan. 20, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Pam Douglas’ Sanctuary installation immerses visitors in the brave experience of global refugees. Inspired by the universal journey of loss and hope, Douglas’ fine art—spanning three years of drawings, sculpture and assemblage—shows together for the first time at TAG Gallery, January 20-February 13.
“I felt compelled to create Sanctuary when I saw migrant children torn from their parents and caged at the US/Mexico border,” Douglas explains. “All over the world, people risk their lives searching for safe haven—including the thousands lost in the Mediterranean, their rafts broken at sea. The show concludes at a symbolic camp where I hint at ordinary life resuming, wishing children could have a future.”
“Pam Douglas is the embodiment of the Los Angeles artist,” says TAG Gallery President K. Ryan Henisey. “Her artwork is unique and reflective of contemporary practice. But it’s her consistent voice and drive to create a peek into a better world that makes Pam special. We are honored at TAG to share her complete Sanctuary works with the community.”
Sanctuary, now in its third and largest showing with all three parts in one collection, contains more than 50 unique pieces of sculptural assemblage and fine art drawings. The the first and second installations of Douglas’ fine art collections appeared in previous iterations at TAG Gallery and the Los Angeles Art Association’s Gallery 825 in 2018, 2019, and 2020.
