The Century Plant: Brad Haubrich
Posted: Sep 25 2010
"The Century Plant" is an exhibition of new works and an installation by South-Philadelphia based artist Bradford Haubrich. This exhibit is aptly named after a common species of the agave plant found in the South-Western United States and Mexico. The plant's moniker has been derived from the amount of time that is necessary for it's 30 foot flower stalk to bloom,(15-25 years). Through studying the aesthetic qualities of indigenous cultures in North America, and adapting these to contemporary methods and media, Bradford has created his latest body of work. Now in his 25th year of life Bradford has metaphorically-aligned himself with The Century Plant, and is set to share his new work in full bloom on September 25th 2010.
