MARK BRADFORD AND MICHAEL AUPING

Join Mark Bradford and curator Michael Auping for a public conversation at Tate Modern.

Bradford will discuss how he uses merchant billboards, posters and other found materials to engage issues of race, queerness and social inequality. The discussion will trace the evolution of Bradford’s practice and explore his unique relationship to paper as both an ordinary material and an extraordinary conveyor of society’s intentions and rights.*
