Joe Bradley, Château de Boisgeloup - April and May 2017
On the occasion of the first public opening of the Château de Boisgeloup, the Fundación Almine y Bernard Ruiz-Picasso para el Arte is pleased to announce an exhibition of new sculptures by American artist Joe Bradley in Pablo Picasso’s former studio. The premises will also be open to the public for several days during the span of the exhibition.
Since the beginning of his career, Joe Bradley has developed a dense pictorial aesthetics, which explores a wide range of techniques and styles, from modular canvases assembled in anthropomorphic shapes and abstract expressionist compositions, to his more cartoonish Schmagoo paintings. More recently, Bradley has also initiated a sculptural body of works, in which two divergent tendencies seem to coexist: his figurative bronzes based on previously found objects versus the minimalist forms of his monolithic sculptures. Like his “modular” paintings, the artist’s aluminum and Plexiglas sculptures open onto a constructivist alternative.
Joe Bradley (born 1975, Maine, USA) lives and works in New York. He studied at the Rhode Island School of Design in Providence, where he received a BFA in 1999. Since his participation in the 2008 Whitney Biennial, Joe Bradley has aroused increased attention. His previous solo exhibitions include BOZAR, Brussels, Belgium (2016-2017); Le Consortium, Dijon, France (2014); PS1 Contemporary Art Center, Long Island City, New York, USA (2006); and ConTEMPorary, New York, USA (2003). His work has also been exhibited in various group shows, such as New York Painting, Kunstmuseum Bonn, Germany (2015); The Museum of Modern Art, New York, USA (2014–2015); The Inevitable Figuration, Centro per l’arte contemporanea Luigi Pecci, Prato, Italy (2013); and New York Minute, MACRO Future, Rome, Italy (2009). In 2017, a monographic exhibition will be organized at the Albright-Knox Art Gallery, Buffalo, USA.
