              Walead Beshty: Industrial Portraits 2008 - 2012: Volume 1 (Paperback)

              Los Angeles-based artist and writer Walead Beshty (born 1976) started his Industrial Portraits series in 2008. He realizes them wherever he goes, asking all the art people he works with to pose in their working environment and working clothes: studio assistants, gallery staff, cu...rators, lab technicians, critics, fellow artists, collectors, art handlers and even the machines, which contribute to an artwork's progress from studio to gallery and beyond. Captioned first as framer, Fedex courier or darkroom assistant and then identified with their initials and the location and date of the shoot, together his models form a nonhierarchical, kaleidoscopic yet very detailed facebook of the art world, following in part the tradition of great American anthropological photographic surveys. This publication gathers together the Industrial Portraits created between 2008 and 2012. A second volume will be published to span the subsequent years.

              Walead Beshty: 33 Texts: 93,614 Words: 581,035 Characters Selected Writing (2003-2015) (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              By Beshty, Walead; Edited by Bovier, Lionel

              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 Lo...ckhart, 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.
