At the New Temporary Contemporary, FWM presents a video collaboration between Los Angeles-based artist Mark Bradford and Philadelphia photographer Carlos Avendaño, titled 2 Videos. Bradford's Niagara (2005) and Avendaño's Brenda (2012) explore similar conversations surrounding gender orientation and public displays of sexuality. As Bradford states, "What does that mean for a man to take public space, to own it for himself, to use it as a runway?"
Mark Bradford creates videos large-scale paintings, collages, and multimedia installations that are grounded visually and culturally in the billboards, posters, signage, and people found in his local urban environment: L.A.'s Leimert Park neighborhood. Carlos Avendaño explores inner-city neighborhoods, public spaces, and urban decay, documenting his discoveries through photography and video to create visual commentaries on consumerism and capitalism.
