Though largely abstract, #MarkBradford’s works explore the ramifications of class, race, and gender. Forms in his recent work seem to suggest maps or aerial views, in line with investigations of race riots, real-estate redlining, and gentrification. In this lithograph from 2003, the composition vibrates with a formal rhythm, while the shapes are eerily reminiscent of nooses. Explore the legacy of lynching through artists like Bradford @brooklynmuseum through October 8.
