Based in New York’s art-rich Chelsea district, with satellite offices in Los Angeles, Pittsburgh, and Milan, Beyer Projects engages with artists in the early phases of their projects to publish sculpture and artist editions. Established in 1998, over the years Beyer has worked collaboratively with a range of contemporary artists—including big names such as the late John Baldessari, Marina Abramović, Louise Bourgeois, Chris Burden, Rebecca Horn, Sol LeWitt, and Claes Oldenburg—to expand and enhance their practice.Read More
Providing a broad spectrum of assistance to artists, including funding, in-depth research, concept development, production management, and getting works into public and private collections, this publisher helps artists develop ideas from anything between basic first sketches and detailed maquettes.
Beyer Projects works with several internationally known contemporary sculptors and mixed-media artists, including Rachel Whiteread, Chuck Close, Richard Tuttle, Tony Cragg, Jeff Koons, and Anish Kapoor. John Baldessari worked on a significant number of projects with the publisher, starting with his first ever sculptural work Beethoven's Trumpet (with Ear) Opus # 127, 130, 131, 132, 133, 135 (2007)—a combination of resin, fibreglass, bronze, aluminium, and electronic components. A complex design, speaking into the suspended bronze trumpet that protrudes from the sculpted ear on the wall triggers a short Beethoven quartet piece to play. Also included on Beyer Projects’ roster are mid-career artists such as Julião Sarmento, Tom Sachs and emerging names including Thomas J. Price, Ana Prvacki, Agnieszka Kurant, Tavares Strachan, Ahmed Alsoudani, David Adamo, and Petra Cortright.
A recent project involved Beyer Projects working with Price—a contemporary figurative sculptor exploring the subtle languages of the face and body, and social hierarchies and expectations—to create an edition of sculptures entitled Cover Up (The Reveal) (2018). The work, cast in bronze with a perspex base, uses Euro-American forms and aesthetics to depict fictional modern-day black males caught in ‘“in-between” moments’ of genuine, unchecked emotions. The very technical process of creating these figures has been intrinsic to the artist’s practice—as he explained in conversation with Ocula’s Tendai John Mutambu, ‘not to talk about how something is made would be to ignore part of the work.’
Working with a range of established names, Beyer Projects’ collaborations with prominent contemporary artists have featured in various major international art events including Frieze London; Art Basel; The Armory Show, New York; and the Venice Biennale. Not limited to gallery spaces, Beyer also works with artists producing public art installations, such as a number of the pieces by English sculptor Julian Opie installed in New York’s City Hall Park for his exhibition Animals, Buildings, Cars, and People (2004); or Thomas J Price’s Network (2013) sculpture, installed outdoors at Old Street Yard in London in 2017.
