Local Artist In Residence
Jeff Beall is an artist whose work has taken a variety forms over the years, exhibiting work in an irregularly regular fashion since 1987. While formally varied, Beall’s conceptually driven work consistently uses techniques of veiling/revealing to heighten the experience of looking.
Beall’s most recent exhibition was entitled Unsolved: LA Uprising @ 25 Years. Its presentation, timed to coincide with the 25th anniversary of the LA riots in April 2017 at Gallery 169 in Santa Monica, CA, served as a memorial honoring the 23 unsolved homicide victims who lost their lives during the uprising.
Public collections include the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia, Berkeley Art Museum, Carnegie Art Museum, Laguna Art Museum, Oakland Museum of Art, Orange County Museum of Art and Portland Museum of Art.
Beall is also co-publisher of X-TRA Contemporary Art Quarterly and serves on the board of Project X Foundation for Art and Criticism. He earned an MFA at CalArts in 1987, and a BA in Architecture from UC Berkeley in 1983.
