Mark Bradford’s exhibition for the U.S. Pavilion at the Venice Biennale was born out of his longtime commitment to the inherently social nature of the material world we all inhabit.
For Bradford (American, b. 1961), 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. The Baltimore exhibition brings together the works from Venice and includes a new site-specific installation, a spectacular painterly “waterfall” in the rotunda adjacent to the exhibition galleries in the Contemporary Wing.
