Visit Joe Bradley: New Paltz, on view at Xavier Hufkens Gallery through October 15, 2022 →
In his paintings, drawings, sculptures, and mixed-media works, Joe Bradley has produced a visual language that oscillates freely between personal and art historical references. Constantly reinventing himself, he cycles through some of the most iconic modes of abstraction, investigating Minimalist questions of color and form, tapping into the spontaneous gesture of Abstract Expressionism, and creating cryptic signs and symbols in ingenious, lively drawings.
Los Angeles-based writer and independent curator Terry R. Myers is an editor-at-large of the Brooklyn Rail. His most recent curatorial project was the survey exhibition, Candida Alvarez: Here, at the Chicago Cultural Center. Myers has held faculty positions at institutions including Art Center College of Design, Otis College of Art and Design, Pratt Institute, the Royal College of Art, and the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, where he was chair of painting and drawing.
The Rail has a tradition of ending our conversations with a poetry reading, and we’re fortunate to have Greg Masters reading.
Author Greg Masters has published 10 books of his writing over the past decade under his imprint Crony Books. The latest collection of poems is The Complete Thoughts of Greg Masters (March 2022).
