Professor Kim Beck Interviewed on Yale University radio WYBCX

Posted on September 19, 2016

Associate Professor of Art Kim Beck talks pot holes, Pittsburgh, and her studio practice (yes, they are related!) on Yale University radio.

Beck’s work spans a variety of media from drawing to installation, looking at ignored landscapes – the outskirts, the suburban, the peripheral – and the changes that take place there. Her often large-scale but sometimes intimate works give a sense of exploration through an everyday environment. She has used skywriting planes to convey messages of a broken economy, made meticulous drawings of half-finished construction sites, life-size silhouettes of billboards, a field guide to weeds, and many other projects which reflect the human influence on the land. At CMU she teaches a variety of foundation and advanced courses in print and 2D media.
