Mad about Mark

Mon, Sep 20, 2010

Only a few weeks remain to catch the Mark Bradford exhibition while it's still in our galleries—and before it heads off to major museums in Boston, Chicago, Dallas, and San Francisco (you really want to be able to say “I saw it here first”). Widely read national critic and blogger Tyler Green is posting an in-depth, typically no-holds-barred series of reviews of the show (part 1, part 2), sparking lively discussion online. Forthcoming reviews will be appearing in two of the top contemporary art magazines, Frieze (in October) and Artforum (in November). Earlier in the run, The Columbus Dispatch ran this review and this interview, and Columbus Underground weighed in with this thoughtful critique. Even the show's microsite, pinocchioisonfire.org, has been receiving accolades, shortlisted at the Cannes Lions awards in June and named “Site of the Day” September 13 from the UK-based, industry-recognized “best of the web” award site The FWA. The Bradford survey was extended at the Wex through October 10—and going up now is a multicolored construction-flagging tape that criss-crosses through our upper and lower lobbies, stairwell, and café area, in  a piece conceived by Megan Geckler, an artist who shares Los Angeles as a home base with Mark Bradford.
