Does the past have a sound? Celebrated for his material-oriented practice, Kevin Beasley juxtaposes sound, silence, and sculpture to examine the legacy of cotton in the American South. Set to the beat of his improvised drumming, this portrait of the artist shows Beasley at work in his Queens studio finishing his most ambitious work to date: “A view of a landscape,” a multipart exhibition at the Whitney Museum of American Art.
