Deutsche Bank is delighted to sponsor the first museum survey of works by Mark Bradford (b. 1961), one of the most interesting and significant mid-career artists working today. "Mark Bradford," (November 19, 2010 through March 13, 2011) will be presented at the Institute of Contemporary Art (ICA), an exhibition venue that has positioned itself at the leading edge for multi-disciplinary arts in Boston for over 70 years and which recently located to its spectacular home overlooking Boston Harbor. The exhibition features over 35 works spanning the past decade while exploring various mediums, including painting, sculpture, installation, and video. The 49 year old Bradford is best known for his monumentally scaled, collage-layered paintings that express the energy and poetry of life in the city - particularly Los Angeles - where the artist lives and works. A recipient of a 2009 MacArthur Foundation Award (known as the "genius grant"), Bradford uses found materials—peeling movie posters, homemade flyers, salvaged plywood, even the endpapers used to perm black hair—to create his vibrant, textured compositions. Pop culture, identity politics, the history of collage, mapping, and abstract painting, are just a few of his influences.

The exhibition runs through March 13, 2011 at the ICA Boston.
