Baltimore Museum of Art Announces Accompanying Catalogue to U.S. Pavilion Exhibition at the 2017 Venice Biennale
Catalogue Features Original Essays by Zadie Smith and Anita Hill, Among Others
BALTIMORE, MD – The Baltimore Museum of Art, the presenter of the U.S. Pavilion at the 2017 Venice Biennale along with the Rose Art Museum at Brandeis University, today announced the publication of Tomorrow Is Another Day, the official catalogue accompanying the exhibition of the same name featuring new work by Mark Bradford for the U.S. Pavilion. The catalogue was created in close collaboration with the artist and Poly-Mode, the design studio of Silas Munro, and is published by Gregory R. Miller & Co. in conjunction with The Baltimore Museum of Art. Tomorrow Is Another Day includes new essays by Zadie Smith, Anita Hill, and others about the importance of Bradford’s work in the current social climate. The catalogue also delves into the development of Bradford’s career as an artist with behind-the-scenes images of Bradford’s creative process and vibrant photography of the art created for the Venice Biennale.
“The catalogue for Tomorrow Is Another Day goes beyond the exhibition of Mark Bradford’s work for the U.S. Pavilion,” said Christopher Bedford, commissioner of the U.S. Pavilion and Dorothy Wagner Wallis Director of The Baltimore Museum of Art. “With essays by important authors, historians, and cultural critics, the catalogue places Mark’s work within the context of our society’s vital conversations about race, gender, and identity.”
Tomorrow Is Another Day was envisioned as a companion to Mark Bradford’s exhibition of the same name, both contextualizing Bradford’s works for the U.S. Pavilion and directly responding to them. The catalogue opens with an essay by the co-curators of the U.S. Pavilion exhibition, Christopher Bedford and Katy Siegel, the inaugural Eugene V. and Clare E. Thaw Endowed Chair in Modern American Art at Stony Brook University and BMA Senior Programming and Research Curator. The introduction prefaces a spectrum of historical and critical writings responding to Bradford’s art and also his social activism, in Los Angeles, New Orleans, Venice, and elsewhere.
