‘Mark Bradford: Los Angeles’ at The Long Museum in Shanghai

The Long Museum has announced the exhibition ‘Los Angeles’ by Mark Bradford, the artist’s largest exhibition to date in China, will open on 27 July 2019. Taking his current residence and hometown as its title, ‘Mark Bradford: Los Angeles’ is a site-specific exhibition that explores the evolution of Bradford’s practice over the past decade, and his treatment of themes from present-day American culture.

While best known for his abstract paintings and collage-based works, as the exhibition will highlight, Bradford has also developed a robust sculptural practice. Organized by independent curator Diana Nawi, ‘Los Angeles’ utilizes the first floor of the Long Museum’s cavernous galleries, including the first presentation of ‘Mithra’ (2008) outside of the United States, a large-scale sculpture the artist conceived for ‘Prospect.1’ in New Orleans, LA.
