Bradly Dever Treadaway
Brooklyn, NY
Neighborhood: Bushwick

ARTIST STATEMENT: Honored to be chosen as a 2017 BRIC Media Arts Fellow Bradly Dever Treadaway is a Brooklyn and New Orleans based artist and teacher utilizing lens-based image making, moving images, sound, sculpture, installation and performance to comment on the breakdown of intergenerational communication and broken familial links due to natural disaster, technological evolution, mental health challenges, societal shifts and the continuance of interpersonal detachment occurring within American communities. His work is visualized through archival interventions and elevated domestic rituals, recontextualizing the archive to serve as form, medium, subject matter and concept, while questioning material significance within the photographic medium. Treadaway creates memorials, monuments and mnemonic devices to illustrate ancestral collisions with contemporary responses. Treadaway is a Fulbright Scholar to Italy and works as both a Faculty member and the Digital Media Coordinator at The International Center of Photography in New York City. His work has been exhibited at the Whitney Museum of Art, Center for Photography at Woodstock, The International Center of Photography, The Mobile Museum of Art, The Ospedale degli Innocenti in Florence, Italy, and the Lishui Museum of Photography in China. His film/video work has been screened at the New Orleans Film Festival, the Carnegie Museum of Art, the National Centre for Contemporary Art in Moscow, Russia, Union Docs, Anthology Film Archives, the Nashville Film Festival, the Coney Island Film Festival, and at the Brooklyn Arts Council’s Scene: Brooklyn. Treadaway has recently held residencies at BRIC Media Arts in Brooklyn, Kutztown University in Pennsylvania and the Contemporary Arts Center at Woodside in NY. Recently, he served as the inaugural juror for the Magic Silver Show at Murray State University, KY.

I’m Gone is a performance and installation that reflects upon confinement and the systematic validation of archival records as a metaphor for death and escape, played out in collaborative gestures by Justin Randolph Thompson and Bradly Dever Treadaway. I’m Gone è una performance e istallazione che e riflette sulla reclusione e la validazione sistematica di documenti d'archivio come una metafora per la morte e la fuga, attroverso i gesti di collaborativi di Justin Randolph Thompson e Bradly Dever Treadaway.

Booked For Safekeeping addresses faltering outlets for the containment and expression of violent impulses, the reactionary bluster of discourse in contemporary society and the isolation and paranoia developing within American communities. Juxtaposed against the grace, rhythm and force inherent within the motions of a boxer engaged in battle with himself are archival images from a 1960 film produced by the Louisiana Association for Mental Health addressing the apprehension and incarceration of disturbed people. While investigating the propensity and commonality of violence, the piece alludes to the distressing shift in tone and approach regarding the policing of communities, wherein patience, compassion, and de-escalation are too often replaced with militaristic distance and aggressive control. Premiered at the 2016 New Orleans Film Festival.
