"He just wants to do art with us … We’re art kids."

For the past six months, the MCA’s video production team has been working hard to document The Mark Bradford Project. We have interviewed dozens of people involved in the project and made trips all over the city, and even to LA, to capture footage of the project in progress. Our goal was to put together a video, to be played at Mark’s exhibition opening, that told the story of the important work that had already taken place during the residency.  Enjoy!
