KIM BECK

Beck grew up in Colorado and now lives in Pittsburgh, where she works and teaches at Carnegie Mellon. She works in a range of media such as drawing, print and installation to survey architecture and landscape. Meditations on weeded lots, street signs, gas station banners, pieces of lawn and sidewalk urge a reconsideration of the built environment, bringing the banal and everyday into focus. Her work has been shown at the Walker Art Center, Carnegie Museum of Art, and on the High Line in NYC and is included in the collections of Agnes Gund, the Philbrook Museum of Art, the Minneapolis Museum of Art and the Carnegie Museum of Art, among others. Read more at idealcities.com.
