Mark Bradford

The American Artist Presents "New Works" At Hauser & Wirth In Hong Kong

March, 2018

American artist Mark Bradford inaugurates the new Hauser & Wirth gallery space in Hong Kong’s H Queen’s designed by architect William Lim by CL3, with an exhibition titled “New Works” spanning both floors of the gallery’s 10,000 sq ft space following the same exhibition’s success in Hauser & Wirth Los Angeles earlier this year.

With his multi-media and abstract impressionist art, Bradford continues his “investigations into the technical and sociopolitical potentials of abstract painting”, with his works providing a profound insight and awakening to America’s current systems, establishing Bradford as one of the most important artists of our generation.

In “New Works”, 10 paintings are presented with the Los Angeles-based artist exploring his interest in the ways marginalised communities are grouped or quantified, here using the ‘map’ as a motif to mine this topic further. Bradford explains, “I have always been interested in the notion of community and, in the most fundamental way, in the things that separate certain groups from others. Traditionally, maps are these finite, informational tools, but in these works they evoke questions about the individuals inhabiting these spaces, and about what these printed lines aren’t necessarily showing us.”

Bradford further notes, “How we build and destroy ourself are the materials that I’m really interested in, and paper is one of the main ways in which information is displayed.’
