Neither new nor correct : new work by Mark Bradford by Carter E Foster( Book )

2 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 235 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Mark Bradford (b. 1961) constructs impressive, large-scale abstractions that merge the subject and substance of urban life, low and high culture, order and chaos. Constructed from the thickly layered street posters that cover the walls, windows, and lampposts of his native South Central Los Angeles, the large-scale abstractions explore the idea of the ruin and the processes of urban decay while recording the community's informal economic patterns. Carol E. Foster delves into Bradford's creative process and innovative use of found materials and reveals the influence of earlier artists, such as Piranesi and Leonardo, on his newest body of work. Focusing on Bradford's method of establishing a metaphoric relationship between the materials he employs and the images he creates, this book offers a perspective on a rising star of contemporary art."--BOOK JACKET

Mark Bradford : tomorrow is another day by MARK BRADFORD( Book )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 159 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mark Bradford's exhibition for the U.S. Pavilion at the Venice Biennale is born out of his longtime commitment to the inherently social nature of the material world we all inhabit. For Bradford, abstraction is not opposed to content; it embodies it. His selection of ordinary materials represents the hair salon, Home Depot, and the streets of Los Angeles--both the culture industry and the grey economy. Bradford renews the traditions of abstract and materialist painting, demonstrating that freedom from socially prescribed representation is profoundly meaningful in the hands of a black artist. Bradford's longtime social and intellectual interests will be present in the Pavilion, most notably in his concern for marginalized people, both their vulnerability and their resiliency, and the cyclical threat and hope of American unfulfilled social promise. Coming at a moment of terrible uncertainty, 'Tomorrow is Another Day' is a narrative of ruin, violence, agency, and possibility, a story of ambition and belief in art's capacity to engage us all in urgent and profound conversations, and even action. Exhibition: U.S. Pavilion, Venice Biennale, Italy (13.05.2017-26.11.2017)

Kevin Beasley by Ruth Erickson( Book )

2 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 60 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the first monograph to explore the dynamic and engaging work of New York-based artist Kevin Beasley (born 1985), published on the occasion of the largest museum exhibition of his work to date. Beasley deploys sound and clothing as his core artistic materials, combining them in stunning, densely packed sculptures and immersive acoustic experiences. In his live performances, Beasley has embedded microphones or other electronic sound equipment in sculptures made of objects and materials such as sneakers, foam, and resin, exploiting and manipulating their sonic possibilities. Beasley's diverse sculptural work ranges from compositions of shredded T-shirts, hoodies, fitted hats, and do-rags, to a large-scale installation of embellished megaphones and gas masks. The exhibition, his first in Boston, will present a selection of the artist's sculptures made over the past five years
Clyfford Still, Mark Bradford : Shade( Book )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 50 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This exhibition catalogue brings together the work of celebrated American artists Clyfford Still (1904--1980) and Mark Bradford (born 1961). Bradford, who has long been fascinated by Still's use of black as a signature component of his abstract imagery, has chosen to read Still's relationship with the color as an open-minded invitation to dialogue. Including reproductions of twenty-five paintings by Still and a group of works Bradford created specifically for the exhibition, ... [t]aken together, the exhibition and book provide the opportunity to reconsider Still's paintings and the historical moment that brought about both Abstract Expressionism and the Civil Rights movement in the company of one of today's most admired artists."--Albright-Knox Art Gallery website
