Indian Country: The Art of David Bradley

Repeats Every Week on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday

Weekends 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Tuesdays - Fridays 10 a.m.-4 p.m.

David Bradley (b. 1954, Minnesota Chippewa) has, over the course of a four-decade painting career, continued to expand the definition of art from “Indian Country” and what is expected of its aesthetic and meaning, within the problematic context of American visual culture. In the process he also redefined what pop art itself can achieve. His innovative style blends traditions from indigenous art with art-historical tropes of European and U.S. art as well as cues from the languages of commerce and tourism. From Warhol to O’Keefe, van Gogh to the Lone Ranger, his colorful, witty tableaux present with the vibrating energy of pop but reveal deeper, more complex investigations of identity, politics, social justice and cultural appropriation. The latter, as Bradley reveals with gusto, can cut both ways.
