Chris Bradley Artist Talk

By CAM Raleigh | February 14, 2012

Meet in the Independent Weekly Gallery to hear exhibiting artist Chris Bradley talk about his work.

A recent School of the Art Institute of Chicago M.F.A graduate, Chris Bradley balances humor with thoughtful composition in his playful installations and pairs unlikely elements with more common sculptural materials such as wood and steel. By arranging prosaic objects in uncommon ways, Bradley assigns them new importance and suggests new ways of relating to them. The use of disparate materials, such as discarded auto parts and cast bronze forms, Bradley creates a conversation amongst the work that diminishes conventional means of appraisal and embraces the material’s immediate effect. 

Join CAM Raleigh to attend this artist talk free of admission charge. Public welcome. Free with museum admission.
