Katherine Bradford (born 1942) is an American artist based in New York, best known for paintings of swimmers, superheroes and ships that critics describe as simultaneously representational and abstract, luminous, and richly metaphorical.She began her career as an artist relatively late in life and has achieved her widest recognition in her seventies, through New York gallery shows at CANADA, Sperone Westwater, and Edward Thorp. Writing about her work’s adventurousness, open-ended process, refusal of canonical either/or conundrums (representational-abstract, formal-narrative) and relevance to younger artists, critic John Yau called Bradford, among others, “an important figure in an alternative history that has yet to receive the attention it deserves.” Image: “Fear of Waves”, acrylic on canvas, 84” x 72” 2015.

Other Events, Opportunities, and Resources

Touched by the Mother
Thur. Nov 5, 6:30pm

In this lecture, Huey Copeland will provide an overview of his work on and approach to modern and contemporary art, with a focus on his forthcoming collection of essays, interviews, and reviews, Touched by the Mother: On Black Men, the Aesthetic Field, and other Feminist Horizons (1966-2016). This volume encompasses a range of unique practices, from the assemblages of Noah Purifoy to the drawings of Steffani Jemison. Just as important, in 'Touched by the Mother' -- a title borrowed from the work of renowned cultural theorist Hortense Spillers -- Copeland articulates how his black queer feminist method draws from various discourses in thinking the intersections of race and gender, history and memory, subjectivity and sexuality, art and culture, an approach that, he argues, productively expands our understanding of both art-historical practice and the aesthetic itself. Please register

Deadline extended! The Department of Africana Studies/Rites and Reason Theatre invites students to create 90-second video clips for RIOT (Response In Our Time), a global performance action anchored at Brown University. In the past six months, what have you seen? How are you feeling? What do we need for the future? Your voice is powerful, and so are the tools at your disposal. Stuff all of that into a song, a dance, a story, a rant, a rap, a monologue, a poem—any kind of performance—using the spaces and places available to you. Submissions are due 10/26 at midnight. Click here to learn more and to submit!
