Bad at Sportst Episode 307: Mark Bradford

This week: Duncan and Claudine talk with Mark Bradford!

Deeply influenced by his experience growing up in South Central Los Angeles, the titles of his works often allude to stereotypes and the dynamics of class, race, and gender-based economies that structure urban society in the United States, specifically those of Los Angeles where he lives and works.

An anthropologist of his own environment, Bradford describes himself as a "modern-day flaneur," saying, "I like to walk through the city and find details and then abstract them and make them my own. I'm not speaking for a community or trying to make a sociopolitical point. At the end it's my mapping. My subjectivity."
