Detroit, MI


In this self-titled, second solo exhibition at The Butcher’s Daughter, new, never-before-seen, sculptural works will be on view by the artist.

Beasley’s site-sensitive installation of work marks the precarious and relational aspects of his sculpture and the personal interconnections between the artist and viewer.

Hallmark characteristics of Beasley’s work such as empirical handling and responsiveness to materials and distinctive, thorough consideration of space and personal intimacy allows patrons and viewers to participate in an affecting and spirited exchange.

Kevin Beasley was born in Lynchburg, Virginia, in 1985. He holds an MFA from Yale University (2012) and received a BFA from the College for Creative Studies in Detroit (2007).

He currently lives and works in New York City.
