Slater Bradley


Slater Bradley (born 1975) is an American conceptual and cross-disciplinary artist, typically working in thematic series and installations. In his video works, Bradley often combines footage of real events, soundtracks drawn from classical and contemporary music as well as references to literary, scientific, or historical works. In his most recent work, Bradley manipulates photographic material by using markers and eliminating backgrounds as well as removing known icons from their time and place.

Bradley was dubbed the "unintended king of serendipity" by curator Heidi Zuckerman as well as “something of a cult hero” by Anne Stringfield of The New Yorker. He has exhibited collaborative work with Ed Lachman at the Aspen Art Museum and the Whitney Museum of American Art. In 2005, at the age of 30, Bradley became the youngest artist to have a solo show at The Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York.  

He currently lives and works in Berlin, Germany.
