The Art of Walead Beshty

Today was the opening of LA based artist, Walead Beshty's "Directions: Walead Beshty: Legibility on Colored Backgrounds" at the Hirshhorn Museum.
The exhibit will run through September 13th, 2009.
Beshty's work is a fascinating look at photography fused with modern art. They are mesmerizing.
He is a modern pioneer of the photogram, a camera-less procedure first conjured up by revolutionary artists such as Laszlo Moholy-Nagy and Man Ray.
If you are into modern photography, be sure to check out the Hirshhorn.
