Opening Wednesday, February 26th at Regen Projects, Los Angeles is “Selected Bodies of Work,” an exhibition of new work by Los Angeles-based artist Walead Beshty. The show features a group of interrelated photographs, sculptures, ceramics, and collages that address bodies and labor as they are rendered visible in or on the art object. Beshty’s work draws upon, subverts, and redefines traditional artistic categories to create an artistic practice built upon material qualities of the aesthetic object and its often contradictory uses. His work disrupts conventions, introduces the presence of chance, welcomes varied external factors, and moves beyond the traditional confines of medium to create a rigorous and diverse artistic practice.
“Selected Bodies of Work” is on view through April 5, 2014.
