P.S.1 Contemporary Art Center presents the work of six artists and artist-teams as part of the International and National Projects program. Featuring new and recent works, these solo exhibitions showcase a range of media, from video and photography to drawing and installation.

Joe Bradley's monochrome paintings and installations of several canvases seem to posit the existence of a mysterious tribe created from radically simplified units. Artists making monochromes shoulder the historical weight of Minimalism, but Bradley's connection to the movement is tenuous; his acrylic layers on cheap, pre-stretched Fredrix canvases convey none of the object fetishism of Carl Andre or Barry Le Va's refined sculptural work.
