Curator Evelyn Hankins, Senior Curator of the Hirshhorn, told ArtTable members about the curation and installation process for Mark Bradford’s “Pickett’s Charge,” a monumental 400 foot cyclorama commissioned for the space. The work is inspired by Paul Philippoteaux’s 19th century “Pickett’s Charge,” and saw Bradford transform the original image into eight abstract paintings predominantly made by found materials. Hankins also discussed how the commission epitomizes the Hirshhorn’s desire to display artists reacting to their current political and cultural climate.
