HomeBUMP + Mark Bradford at SFMOMA
BUMP + Mark Bradford at SFMOMA
Posted on: Tuesday, February 21 2012 |
Last Thursday at SFMOMA, BUMP Records performed in response to the opening of Mark Bradford's mid-career retrospective and new album Pinocchio Is On Fire. Simultaneously broadcast live on SF Commons, BUMP artists Kovu/SHAD (Abbas Khalid), Teka Miranda, Moria Moore and Queen Shabazz performed a thoughtful, impressive set of songs to a packed crowd in the SFMOMA atrium.
With only four weeks to collaborate with multimedia artist Mark Bradford, write and produce music, memorize songs and rehearse for opening night, it was a landmark performance for the BUMP artists. The event was hosted by M.C. Do D.A.T. and included (three!) costume changes from Moria Moore and opening remarks from Frank Smigeil, SFMOMA's Associate Curator of Public Programs, who spoke about the Factory and BUMP's collaboration on the Black Panther Party for History in These Streets.
We are very proud of the BUMP artists' achievements and look forward to upcoming collaborations!
