Amanda Beech

Artist and writer. Beech’s work takes up the dynamic of image-force by entangling narratives of power from philosophical theory, literature, and real political events. Inspired by these discourses on power, her work proposes a new realist politics of the artwork and its possibilities in the context of contingency. Beech has exhibited her art work internationally; recent exhibitions include: Final Machine 2013, Lanchester Gallery Projects, Coventry, UK and Ha Gamle Prestagard, Norway; Asymmetrical Cinema, Beaconsfield Gallery, London; and, (Past Present) Future Tense, Center for Living Arts, Alabama, USA 2013. Recent publications include: Final Machine, Urbanomic, 2013; Sanity Assassin, Urbanomic, 2010 and, “Concept Without Difference, The Promise of the Generic” in Realism, Materialism, Art, CCS Bard, forthcoming 2013. Beech also regularly speaks at conferences and symposia and is Dean of Critical Studies at CalArts, USA.
