Last week Mark Bradford announced that his work in Venice this summer will go beyond his exhibition at the U.S. Pavilion. The artist is partnering with the local nonprofit Rio Terà dei Pensieri for a project called Process Collettivo. Aimed to help prisoners re-enter society, the project will raise awareness of the problems in the penal system and promote the reintegration of former inmates.
