LOS ANGELES—On the occasion of ‘Mark Bradford. New Works,’ the artist’s first gallery exhibition in his hometown of Los Angeles in over 15 years, and on the heels of his acclaimed exhibition for the US Pavilion at the 2017 Venice Biennale, which will travel to The Baltimore Museum of Art (BMA), we hope you will join us for a screening of ‘Mark Bradford and Rio Terà dei Pensieri: Process Collettivo.’ This englightening, 10 minute documentary follows Bradford as he prepares for the US pavilion, as well as his groundbreaking work with Rio Terà dei Pensieri, an Italian nonprofit that supports skill-based training and reintegration for inmates of Venice prisons.

‘Mark Bradford and Rio Terà dei Pensieri: Process Collettivo’ is directed by Heather Fipps, LA-based filmmaker, video designer, and educator. Fipps is the Assistant Professor/Student Production Unit Director 
for the department of Television, Film & Media Studies at California State University, Los Angeles (CSULA). Fipps is also an integral figure in the shared project between CSULA and Hauser & Wirth – Community Impact Media– which provides neighboring youth with hands-on media making and storytelling mentorship toward the production of video projects written and directed by the student filmmakers.

After the screening, Fipps will join Agata Gravante, Process Collettivo Creative Director, and Hauser & Wirth Los Angeles Senior Director Stacen Berg and Events Manager Russell Salmon for a discussion about the evolving partnership and its ability to encourage students to reimagine the role of filmmakers as neighbors and citizens committed to meaningful social change.
