MARK::BRADFORD::AT::THE::WEX::



SO MARK BRADFORD'S SHOW: "PINNOCCHIO ON FIRE" AT THE WEX IS STELLAR. THE EXHIBIT LASTS CLEAR THRU TIL OCTOBER. HIS ABSTRACTIONS OF GEOGRAPHIC LOCATION, VISUAL COMMENTARY, ON RACE, AND SEX, ARE ASTOUNDING, TO SAY THE LEAST. BRADFORD IS A LOS ANGELES CALI NATIVE, WHOSE WORK RINGS TRUE TO THE ENVIRONMENT HE GREW UP IN. IN 2009 HE WAS AWARDED THE MACATHUR FELLOWSHIP GRANT $500,000 DOLLARS TO PROMISING ARTISTS TO DO WHAT THEY PLEASE. (*JEALOUSY)


RECENTLY HE HAS TRANSFORMED THE WEXNER GALLERY SPACE INTO A BARRAGE OF 3-d SCULPTURE/VIDEO INSTALLATIONS, and OVERSIZED MIXED MEDIA PIECES. AND MARK... IF YOU'RE READING, I WOULD LOVE IT IF I COULD OWN ONE OF YOUR PIECES. (REALLY)

Method Man 2004 paper, acrylic gel medium, caulking on paper.

CHECK THE SHOW OUT, IF YOU ARE A CCAD OR OSU STUDENT WITH A STUDENT ID YOU GET IN FOR FREE! IF YOU ARE JUST A CURIOUS ART LOVER YOU CAN GET IN ON THURSDAYS FOR FREE, OR ANY OTHER DAY FOR $5! *AWESOME!
