The Los Angeles-based artist Mark Bradford with his project titled “Tomorrow Is Another Day” represents the United States at the 2017 Venice Biennale. The exhibition at the US Pavilion features a new site-specific installation by Bradford, who works in a variety of media. Bradford’s longtime social and intellectual interests will be present in the Pavilion, most notably in his concern for marginalized people, both their vulnerability and their resiliency, and the cyclical threat and hope of American unfulfilled social promise. Coming at a moment of terrible uncertainty, “Tomorrow is Another Day” is a narrative of ruin, violence, agency, and possibility, a story of ambition and belief in art’s capacity to engage us all in urgent and profound conversations, and even action.
