Join us at e-flux on Thursday, February 15 at 7pm for a live performance by Kevin Beasley

Kevin Beasley (b. 1985, Lynchburg, VA) lives and works in New York. He received his BFA from the College for Creative Studies, Detroit in 2007 and his MFA from Yale University School of Art, New Haven, CT in 2012. Beasley’s practice spans sculpture, photography, sound, and performance while centering on materials of cultural and personal significance, from raw cotton harvested from his family’s property in Virginia to sounds gathered using contact microphones. Beasley alters, casts, and molds these diverse materials to form a body of works that acknowledge the complex, shared histories of the broader American experience, steeped in generational memories. 

A selection of his performances include A View of a Landscape, with Taja Cheek (L’Rain), Ben Chapoteau-Katz (L’Rain), Eli Keszler, and Moor Mother, Performance Space New York, NY (2023); The Sound of Morning, a series of outdoor performances for the Performa 2021 Biennial, New York, NY; Rant, an ongoing series with Ralph Lemon initiated at the Whitney Museum, Palacio Dos Correios, Porto, Portugal (2019), with other iterations at The Kitchen, New York, NY (2020), and Hammer Museum, Los Angeles, CA (2022); ASSEMBLY, organized with Lumi Tan, Tim Griffin, and Nicole Kaack, The Kitchen, New York, NY (2019); a series of performances for Kevin Beasley: A View of a Landscape, Whitney Museum of American Art, New York, NY (2019); Your face is/is not enough, The Renaissance Society at the University of Chicago, IL (2016); and I Want My Spot Back,The Museum of Modern Art, New York, NY (2012).
