Union Gallery is pleased to present Shane Bradford’s third exhibition with the gallery, Cult and Event Volumes, with a two-part installation over the gallery’s spaces, curated by William Gustafsson.
Cult and Event Volumes are two parts of one exhibition running across the two Union Gallery spaces. The shows are separate yet integrally related, each informing the other and extrapolating ideas around what it means to make paintings within the current socio-political conditions. Borrowing from systems of creation and distribution native to fashion couture, the exhibition broadly covers topics such as the power of group belief, the cult of art, the significance of speed in society, and the agency of materials themselves.
