Mark Bradford: Dancing in the Street, 2019
Streaming live May 16, 7-10 pm
Experience the The Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth’s film and video collection from home with a new program, Modern TV, launching May 16.
Mark Bradford’s video “Dancing in the Street, 2019”, shows a performance of the song by Martha and the Vandellas of the same name being projected onto buildings and fences across Los Angeles at night. The song debuted in 1964 and was adopted as a civil rights anthem and call to action during the Watts riots the following year. This work is in the Museum’s permanent collection and is in the Modern’s current exhibition “Mark Bradford: End Papers”.
Every other Saturday at 7 pm, free screenings of videos by leading contemporary artists will be linked or livestreamed here: https://www.themodern.org/modern-tv
