📷: Sun Xun’s “Clown’s Revolution”

Greetings from the @hirshhorn! We’re taking over the BMA’s Story to explore our site-specific installation by #MarkBradford, “Pickett’s Charge”!
.
.
The monumental work features eight canvases that stretch across the entire inner-ring gallery 🙌🏽Bradford drew inspiration for this new work from French artist Paul Philippoteaux’s nineteenth-century cyclorama, “Pickett’s Charge” —the final charge of the Battle of Gettysburg, which historians cite as the critical turning point of the Civil War and, consequently, of American history. Working
with a combination of colored paper and reproductions of the original, Bradford transformed the historic Gettysburg imagery. The resulting work weaves past and present, illusion and abstraction, inviting visitors to reconsider how narratives about American history are shaped and contested.

Due to the winter storm forecast, the BMA's galleries will be closed tomorrow, Wednesday, February 20. Enjoy your #snow day! ☃️
