Mark Bradford | The Artist’s Museum from MOCA on Vimeo.

Mark Bradford has been highly collected and reviewed on many international scales. Upon his recent work Bad Ass featured at MOCA’s The Artist’s Museum, his profile video explains the dialect between the identities related in everyday language and his own personal confines of words found within his paintings.

The Artist’s Museum video series looks at eight significant artists who have produced some of the finest contemporary works in Los Angeles from 1980 to present day. Structured as extended studio visits, these videos capture each artists’ creative process and motivations, developing a rich narrative on the vitality of the Los Angeles artist community.

This series was produced in support of the exhibition The Artist’s Museum: A showcase of works by 146 artists who have helped shape the artistic dialogue in Los Angeles over the last 30 years, on view through January 31, 2011.
