MARK BRADFORD EXHIBITION AT WEXNER CENTER
The first museum survey, organized by the Wexner Center for the Arts in Columbus, of the breakthrough work by South Central Los Angeles artist Mark Bradford has been extended to run at the Wexner through Sunday, October 10. A 2009 MacArthur Foundation award recipient, Bradford (b. 1961) produces large-scale abstract paintings composed of collaged materials including billboard fragments and other varied papers layered together (or stripped apart) and then further manipulated through techniques like sanding or caulking. The exhibition looks back 10 years and emphasizes his constant pushing forward with each endeavor. The show will continue to Boston, Chicago, Dallas and San Francisco into 2012. New works realized under Bradford’s Wexner residency are included as well as in the Web microsite www.PinocchiosOnFire.org. The Wexner Center is located at 1871 North High Street in Columbus. For more information, call (614) 292-3535.
