Happy Birthday to ‪ #CalArts‬ alum Mark Bradford, who was ‪ #BornOnThisDay‬. And for those in London, don’t miss the artist's show 'Cerberus,' on view at ‪@HauserWirth‬ through Dec. 21, 2019. .
.
“The exhibition of new work, including the film ‘Dancing in the Street’ (2019), sees Bradford return to ancient mythology, a consistent source of inspiration for the artist. Specifically, he now engages the many headed dog guarding the entryway to Hades, Cerberus.
It is a particularly resonant metaphor for Bradford, who has always been fascinated by interstitial spaces and figures. In fact, of the relationship between his art and his community engagement, Bradford has often declared his imperative to have one foot firmly planted in each.

As Bradford explains, ‘I have always been interested in pulling the world that exists beyond the studio walls, and outside the art world, into the work.’” -Hauser & Wirth

“Hold fast to dreams

Hold fast to dreams

Life is a barren field

In November 2017, African American artist Mark Bradford unveiled his largest commission to date, a monumental sequence of paintings that completely spans the 400 linear feet of the rotunda of @hirshhorn in Washington, DC. Bradford drew inspiration from French artist Paul Philippoteaux’s nineteenth-century cyclorama at the Gettysburg National Military Park, Pennsylvania. Philippoteaux’s cyclorama depicts Pickett’s Charge — the final charge of the Battle of Gettysburg, which historians cite as the critical turning point of the Civil War and American history. Working with a combination of colored paper, elastic ropes and reproductions of the original painting, Bradford transformed the historic Gettysburg imagery into a series of eight powerful, abstract paintings. By cutting, tearing, and scraping through the layers, Bradford reveals the hidden textures and complexities of the narrative. Each painting is more than forty-five feet long, ‘Pickett’s Charge’ weaves past and present, representation and abstraction, inviting the viewer to reconsider how American history is shaped and contested, now viewed through the lens of a contemporary black artist. -

Double tap to wish #MarkBradford happy birthday! A cultural leader with 10 works in the Broad collection, Bradford has said that when he was younger, “Between crack cocaine, drive-by shootings, and AIDS, I thought there was no way I was going to make it.” From representing the U.S. at the 2017 @LaBiennale to opening his first exhibition at @HauserWirth in London this month, Bradford has achieved a career that many spend a lifetime striving for.

“‘Abstraction,’ to me, means that you’re interrogating—it’s interrogating. It’s dismantling. It’s moving things around a little bit…” ⠀

Happy Birthday to #MarkBradford! 🥳 Bradford continues the lineage of postwar #abstraction and opens up new possibilities for contemporary painting with his experimental use of paper, often taken from his environment. ⠀

See his work now through Jan. 19, 2020 in Generations: A History of Black Abstract Art. Tickets available at artbma.org/generations. #GenerationsBMA

Posted @withrepost@hauserwirth Mark Bradford creates his paintings through a process of cutting, tearing and power washing through layers of colorful paper. With this process of accumulation and excavation, the artist creates a multiplicity of references and reveals both form and composition in his works. ⁣

The abstraction is his result of tireless exploration on the figurative and familiarity ( such as maps with substantial meanings) by which that makes his images tick. Bradford is truly our modern day master, don’t miss this monumental new solo @hauserwirth #markbradford Cerberus till 21 Dec 2019 #london

While working with @patsteir @hirshhorn on the recently opened exhibition #colorwheel we had many chances to spend time looking at #pickettscharge the #markbradford installation, also on view at #hirshhornmuseum . Here #patsteir #joostelffers and a member of the museum staff tour his installation. Happy Birthday to Mark Bradford and thank you for this public work, engaging history to reflect upon past and present.

В галерее Hauser & Wirth проходит выставка Марка Брэдфорда под названием “Цербер”, запоминающаяся огромными холстами. Именно размер этих работ, расположенных в главном зале галереи, производит впечатление на зрителя. Брэдфорд наносит на холст много слоёв пигментированной бумаги, которая надрезается, рвётся и удаляется. Работы, представленные на выставке, имеют заметную плавность формы и композиции, поскольку художник продолжает развивать визуальный язык, основанный на его интуитивном подходе к материалам. Получающиеся поверхности изобилуют тканями, пересекающимися сетями и жидкими отражениями, которые Брэдфорд назвал призраками взаимодействия. "Цербер" - это выставка, посвящённая трудным и промежуточным местам, где возникают конфликты, а также, где можно найти надежду на разрешение. Как объясняет Брэдфорд: «Я всегда был заинтересован в том, чтобы втянуть мир, который существует за стенами студии и вне мира искусства, в произведение». Очень интересно посмотреть на то, как художник передает свой внутренний мир, свои взгляды и переживания .

Hauser & Wirth Gallery present “Cerberus” by Mark Bradford, an exhibition notable for its huge canvases. It is the size of these works, located in the main gallery, that leave an impression on the viewer. Bradford puts a lot of layers of pigmented paper, which is cut, torn and removed from the canvas.
The works presented at the exhibition have a noticeable fluidity of form and composition, as the artist continues to develop a visual language based on his intuitive approach to materials. The resulting surfaces abound in webs, intersecting networks and liquid reflections, which Bradford called the “ghosts of an interaction.” “Cerberus” was is an exhibition dedicated to difficult and intermediate places where conflicts arise, as well as where hope can be found.
As Bradford explains, ‘I have always been interested in pulling the world that exists beyond the studio walls, and outside the art world, into the work.’

“Art has value because it has value.” If you build it they will come.

Mark Bradford, born and raised in South Central LA. One of the most influential artists today.
Sold his first piece when he was 40.

This is inspiring and a good reminder... don't wait for others to validate what you do... because it is likely never to happen.

It is certainly my reality in this moment!

The surfaces of Mark Bradford’s paintings are alive with webs, intersecting networks and liquid reflections which Bradford has described as ‘ghosts of an interaction’. They bring to mind a language of European painting, in particular the work of the CoBrA artists that Bradford encountered during the period he lived in Amsterdam in his twenties. ⁣

‘Cerberus’ is Bradford’s first exhibition at Hauser & Wirth in London and extends across the entirety of the gallery’s spaces, open through 21 December 2019. Follow the link in our bio to watch Bradford expand on the inspiration for ‘Cerberus’ from antiquity to the civil rights movement. ⁣

“Artists need to become a part of decision making process,” says Mark Bradford when we meet him in London @hauserwirth where his impressive works are on display this autumn. Mark insists that we all have to “focus on things that are sustainable. I’m obsessed with sustainability!” In 2014 Mark created a foundation Art+Practice @artandpractice in LA running programs for children transitioning out of foster care. While, during his previous participation at @labiennale he raised awareness and supported a woman’s prison on Giudecca island. “When you think of Venice, you don’t think of a woman’s prison....” We admire and share Mark’s vision and looking forward to witness more of his community based art projects and “conscious” artistic practice that makes a world a better place! #zeitgeist19 #markbradford #frieze2019 #london #hauserandwirth @markbradford_hauserandwirth #FarahPiriye

Double tap to wish #MarkBradford happy birthday! A cultural leader with 10 works in the Broad collection, Bradford has said that when he was younger, “Between crack cocaine, drive-by shootings, and AIDS, I thought there was no way I was going to make it.” From representing the U.S. at the 2017 @LaBiennale to opening his first exhibition at @HauserWirth in London this month, Bradford has achieved a career that many spend a lifetime striving for.
