Biography ( )
Gina Beavers creates paintings and installations from images culled from the internet and social media, such as ‘food porn’, ‘bodybuilders’ selfies, or makeup tutorials. Her paintings transform these flat-screen images into high acrylic textural reliefs with a real sculptural presence and offers uncanny and often unsettling visions of our digitally mediated lives.
Gina Beavers had her first solo museum exhibition at MoMA PS1 in 2019. Other previous solo exhibitions were held at the Neuer Achener Kunstverein, Aachen, Germany; Marianne Boesky, New York, NY USA; Michael Benevento, Los Angeles, CA USA; Carl Kostyál, London, UK and Milan, Italy; James Fuentes, New York, NY USA; Gavin Brown’s Enterprise, New York, NY USA; Cheim and Read, New York, NY USA; and Canada Gallery, New York, NY USA, among others.
Her work has been included in group exhibitions at the Kentucky Museum of Contemporary Art, Louisville, KY USA; the Nassau County Museum of Art, New York, NY USA; the Flag Art Foundation, New York, NY USA; the William Benton Museum of Art, CT USA; Abrons Art Center, New York, NY USA and most recently Friends and Friends of Friends curated by Oli Epp at the Schlossmuseum Linz, Austria.
