Kevin Beasley (b. 1985, Lynchburg, Virginia, USA) lives and works in New York. Beasley’s practice traverses sculpture, photography, sound and performance. Through the material transformation of a synthesis of objects, ranging from clothing to studio happenings, Beasley reimagines both personal and wider cultural realities, eliciting new meaning within our shared histories.
