Nov 11, 2020
On Wednesday, November 11 at 6:00 pm EDT, join us for our rescheduled Instagram live conversation between filmmaker and director Garrett Bradley and Legacy Russell, Associate Curator, Exhibitions. Bradley works across narrative, documentary, and experimental modes of filmmaking to address themes such as race, class, familial relationships, social justice, Southern culture, and the history of film in the United States. Her first solo New York exhibition, Projects: Garrett Bradley, opens November 21, 2020 at The Museum of Modern Art and is presented by The Studio Museum in Harlem, The Museum of Modern Art, and MoMA PS1 as part of a multiyear partnership.
Bradley’s film America (2019), which the exhibition is centered around, imagines Black figures from the early decades of the twentieth century whose lives have been lost to history. The multichannel video installation is organized around twelve short Black-and-white films shot by Bradley and set to a score by artist Trevor Mathison and composer Udit Duseja. The exhibition is organized by Thelma Golden, Director and Chief Curator, with Legacy Russell. In this live conversation, Bradley and Russell will discuss Bradley’s growth as tied to being a filmmaker and artist and America as it is staged in the forthcoming exhibition.
To watch the talk, visit the Studio Museum’s Instagram page at 6:00 pm EDT.
