NEW YORK, NY.- New Photography 2009 is a thematic presentation of significant recent work in photography that examines and expands the conventional definitions of the medium. Although the six artists represent diverse points of view, working methods, and pictorial modes ranging from abstract to representational, their images all begin in the studio or the darkroom and result from processes involving collection, assembly, and manipulation. Many of the works are made with everyday materials and objects, as well as images from the Internet, magazines, newspapers, and books. Some of the artists also work in other mediums and their work relates to disciplines such as drawing, sculpture, and installation. As traditional photographic techniques are being quickly replaced by digital technologies, the artists included here examine the process and structure of making photographs.

Walead Beshty (b. 1976, London, UK) is an artist and writer living and working in Los Angeles. Beshty holds a BA from Bard College and an MFA from Yale University School of Art. Selected exhibitions include the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, Washington, DC (solo 2009); "Word Event (After George Brecht)," Kunsthalle Basel (2008); The 2008 Whitney Biennial, Whitney Museum of American Art, New York; "Meanwhile in Baghdad," The Renaissance Society, Chicago (2008); Armand Hammer Museum of Art, Los Angeles (solo 2006); Wallspace, New York (solo 2009, 2006, 2004); "The New City," the Whitney Museum of American Art, (2005/6). His work is in many public collections including the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York; the Guggenheim Museum, New York; the Hammer Museum, Los Angeles. He is a regular contributor to Texte zur Kunst, and Afterall Journal, and was recently appointed to the core faculty of the Graduate Fine Art Program of Art Center College of Art and Design.
