These Pictures Are (and make for) A Text is an exhibition of Bradley’s body of work Dark Archives as well as new work recently made by the artist. Dark Archives is a provocative exploration of one black man’s memories of childhood. An autobiography in fragments, Dark Archives interweaves Andre Bradley’s writing and photographs with pictures from his family archive. Part story, part lyrical investigation, Dark Archives aims to upset the linguistic and visual constrictions placed on black males.

Bradley powerfully combines image and text in this deeply moving meditation on narrative agency, on the family as archive, on being a young black man, and on being himself.
