MARK BRADFORD

MARK BRADFORD

Mark Bradford (born 1961 in Los Angeles, where he lives and works) is an artist best known for his large-scale abstract paintings that examine the class, race, and gender-based economies that structure urban society. A former graduate from the California Institute of the Arts and a MacArthur Genius grant fellow in 2009, Bradford started working on collages and installations made of materials scavenged from the streets. In doing so, he created a unique body of work that still stands as a strong response to the impromptu networks that emerge within a city.

FRANK STELLA

FRANK STELLA

Initially influenced by the work of the abstract expressionists, Frank Stella subsequently rejected the movement in favour of more radical forms. In 1960 Stella presented his first series of aluminium paintings at Leo Castelli, causing the first upset in a long history of experiments that saw him tackling minimalism, post-painterly abstraction, and public art. This book examines Stella’s life and career in the context of the contemporary art world, featuring works from his recent blockbuster museum exhibitions as well as landmark works from throughout his career.
