The Un-Private Collection: Mark Bradford, Sharon Lockhart + Katy Siegel
Los Angeles-based artists Sharon Lockhart and Mark Bradford, both featured in this year's Venice Biennale, come together at the Orpheum Theatre downtown to discuss their creative practices and their focus on social justice through work with communities. Lockhart explores the human subjects of her artwork through workshops, film and photographs, and Bradford through the found materiality of his painting and activism. Through their respective practices, both seek to enrich the communities they engage in their processes. This conversation with curator, critic and art historian Katy Siegel will explore their work now at the Venice Biennale, in the American and Polish pavilions, and their related social activism projects. Bradford's Across 110th St. (2008) and Boreas (2007), and Lockhart's Manioc Production: Elenilde Correa, Eliane Correa, Neide Correa, Mariana Correa, Denize Correa & Maria Corres, Santa Rita Community, River Aripuana, Brazil (1999) are currently on view in The Broad's collection installation, Oracle.
