Ahead of a collaboration with Mark Bradford for the U.S. Pavilion in the upcoming Venice Biennale, the Baltimore Museum of Art has acquired a video and a painting by the Los Angeles–based artist, as well as works by Paul Chan, Ellsworth Kelly, and Norman Lewis.

Among the works added to the museum’s collection is Chan’s 1st Light, a 2005 light projection that shows what appears to be rubble and people falling. Shown on the floor like the reflecting from a window, it recalls images of September 11, 2001.

Below are a list of the works recently acquired by the museum.

  • Mark Bradford, My Grandmother Felt the Color, 2016
  • Mark Bradford, Niagara, 2005
  • Paul Chan, 1st Light, 2005
  • Ellsworth Kelly, Stairway, St. Martin, 1977
  • Norman Lewis, Autumn Flight, 1956
