Selected Writings (2003–2015) By Walead Beshty

Published by JRP|Ringier.
Edited by Lionel Bovier. Introduction by George Baker.

Los Angeles–based artist Walead Beshty (born 1976) has long maintained an active writing career alongside his work in the visual arts. Writing on a variety of media, including essays on cinema, painting, sculpture and photography, and texts on artists such as Jay DeFeo, Sharon Lockhart, Kelley Walker, Luisa Lambri, Annette Kelm and Michael Asher, among others, Beshty has been widely published in both books and magazines. This book, the latest in JRP|Ringier’s Positions series copublished with Les presses du réel, gathers together a selection of these essays, often hard to find, in partially reedited forms. Together these texts appear as a parallel production to Beshty’s artistic work: they reflect on the conditions of the realization and circulation of images, undermining distinctions between media, abstraction and figuration, and proposing new aesthetic criteria for the works examined.

Walead Beshty: Natural HistoriesWalead Beshty: Natural Histories

Published by JRP|Ringier.
Foreword by Jacob Fabricius, Ferran Barenblit. Text by Nicolas Bourriaud, Suzanne Hudson, Bob Nickas.

Moments spent in elevators, check-ins at airports, subway rides—these are all examples of the kind of “in-between” time that fascinates Walead Beshty and supplies so much of the material for his photographs. “In-between time” applies to civic space, too—depopulated modernist housing developments that sit precariously between evacuation and demolition (explored by Beshty in his Excursionist Views), plants, weeds and vegetation on isolated highway medians (Island Flora), or abandoned shopping malls (American Passages). More recently, Beshty’s adventures in “the in-between” have become a means of production, as he makes creative use of such mundane procedures as air travel or sending a package. This monograph presents a ten-year overview of Walead Beshty’s approach to photographic and sculptural representation, and contains newly commissioned essays by Suzanne Hudson and Nicolas Bourriaud, as well as a conversation between Bob Nickas and Beshty.

Published by Damiani.
Text by Peter Eleey, Jason Smith, Eric Schwab.

Walead Beshty (born 1976) has long used photography as a tool to explore social conditions. In 2001, the artist began documenting the abandoned embassy of the defunct Iraqi Diplomatic Mission in the former East Berlin. This publication focuses on three related bodies of work that continue Beshty's engagement with the invisible territories of globalization.
