Book › Hardcover
America’s representative at the 2017 Venice Biennale, Bradford has radically renewed abstract art

Mark Bradford’s exhibition for the US Pavilion at the 2017 Venice Biennale, titled Tomorrow Is Another Day, is born out of the artist’s longtime commitment to the inherently social nature of the material world.

Book cover from Elliott Hundley: The Bacchae by Christopher Bedford
Book › Paperback
Elliott Hundley (born 1975) conceives of his exhibitions as theatrical environments--dense narrative landscapes populated by actors.

These epic installations collapse historical and narrative time, placing equal emphasis on classical mythology, art history and the socio-political conditions of the present....
