Mark Bradford: Through Darkest America by Truck and Tank
Running time 6 minutes
In this film, Mark Bradford talks about his practice in general as well as the particular development of the work in his exhibition Through Darkest America by Truck and Tank at White Cube Bermondsey. Bradford reveals how he is interested in political narratives of the 'other' and how his interest in Eisenhower led to a study of the American interstate system. He talks about the role of the freeway and how it is as much about a form of connection as it is about social division.
Running time 12 Minutes
