Beginning later this week, Season 4 artist Mark Bradford will be featured in two upcoming exhibitions in New York City. The first is a solo show at Sikkema Jenkins & Co. (home to fellow Art21 artists Kara Walker, Shahzia Sikander, and Arturo Herrera), opening this Thursday, January 17 at 6pm and running through February 23.

Across town at the New Museum, Bradford’s work is included in part two of the Museum’s opening exhibition, Unmonumental. In Collage: The Unmonumental Picture, recent collages by eleven artists (Season 4 artist Nancy Spero among them) will be installed on the gallery walls surrounding the sculptures already on view. Using varied strategies and materials, each artist exploits the formal and ideological power of juxtaposing found images to create everything from social and political commentaries to Surrealist fantasies and personal confessions. Collage: The Unmonumental Picture runs from January 16 through March 30. View images from the exhibition here.

On Saturday, January 19 at 3pm, in conjunction with Collage: The Unmonumental Picture, Mark Bradford will take part in a panel discussion with fellow featured artists Christian Holstad and Wangechi Mutu, moderated by Chief Curator Richard Flood. The event is free with museum admission. Read more about the event.
