Chicago Works: Chris Bradley

Video

Description

This video documents Andrew W. Mellon Postdoctoral Curatorial Fellow Joey Orr's visit to the artist studio of Chris Bradley, located on the West Side of Chicago. The pair discuss Bradley's process while looking at several in-progress works, including a motorized potato pacing a wall, stacks of fabricated bags of ice and paint cans, and a miniature swimming pool tucked inside the drawer of a nightstand. Many other objects lie about the studio, including keychains, banana peels, and pretzel rods stuck together with chewing gum, but none are what they appear to be.
