Hirshhorn's New Mark Bradford Commission Inspired by Historic Gettysburg Masterpiece
On November 8, 2017, internationally renowned artist Mark Bradford will unveil a commissioned "cyclorama" of new site-specific paintings at the Smithsonian's Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden. On view for a full year, Bradford's monumental installation, titled "Pickett's Charge," will be the artist's first solo exhibition in Washington, D.C. The eight works comprising the commission, each more than 45 feet long, will encircle the entire third floor, using the museum's distinctive circular architecture to create a 360-degree panoramic experience that extends nearly 400 linear feet.
