An MCA exclusive! This set of six coasters includes two each of three different designs.

Brandon Breaux is from Chicago’s Greater Grand Crossing neighborhood and is a multidisciplinary artist. Brandon is a collaborator—whether painting a mural for a Chicago public school, designing an album cover for Chance the Rapper, or working with commercial brands and agencies.

This collaboration is a conversation about how one relates to space.  The artwork is an abstraction of the MCA’s blueprint and is an extrapolation/metaphor of relating to the space in new ways.  Brandon says, “Using the golden rectangle as a guide I used shape and color to build a fun composition which celebrates the architecture of the building itself through my visual language.”

He adds, "My mother always had decorative coasters. For our first apt in the late 80s, my mom bought this furniture and the idea was that furniture should last forever. Coasters were a big deal – for not messing up the wood. We had decorative coasters with old-school Japanese woodblock paintings. I remember it being part of the art we had. African masks. Functional art items provide access to art and to collect and reflect. When I’m creating things it’s important for me to have a message that is a part of the thing, for that people engage in, as a reminder of why I do what I do and our abilities to imagine a future that we want to live into."
