This Week in Art 5.22-5.28: Mark Bradford Shines in Venice

Of course, having your work featured in the Venice Biennale is bound to garner press attention, but Mark Bradford’s exhibition at the U.S. Pavilion has resulted in serious praise, including being called today’s Jackson Pollock. Bradford has been credited for expanding painting to the realm of social practice, like Pollock brought the “theatrical performance of ‘action'” to the medium. Hyperallergic writes that the show offers a “glimmer of hope,” Culture Type uncovers the inspiration behind the exhibition, and the Baltimore Sun says the show “roughs up the American Dream.”
