Bradly Dever Treadaway is a Brooklyn based artist and teacher utilizing photography, video, film and installation to emphasize socially conscious themes and self-awareness. His work revolves around fleeting family histories visualized through domestic rituals, the loss of cultural tradition and aspires to reunite present and past through visual metaphors. Treadaway works with five generations of family archives from Southern Louisiana, deconstructing and recontextualizing the archive to serve as form, medium and concept.
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 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 also remains engaged in a 17-year collaboration with internationally acclaimed and exhibited artist Justin Randolph Thompson.
