“WITHIN WITHOUT brings together four artists whose work in varying ways addresses the idea of structure. The exhibition’s unique focus is on how structure, more than just an armature or architectural principle, can be the subject or even content of an artwork. The artists, Jarrod Beck, Olivia Moore, Andrea Myers and Jordan Tate, each call into question structure in their own way resulting in a selection of work that appears divergent visually but is indeed closely linked conceptually.” Erik Wenzel
JARROD BECK has created installations at Socrates Sculpture Park, Wave Hill Garden and Cultural Center, South Street Seaport Museum, Lawndale Art Center, Instituto Cervantes NY, Cape Cod National Seashore, Provincetown Art Association and Museum and Bemis Center for Contemporary Art. His drawings are in the collection of the Museum of Modern Art, New York. Beck has been artistin-residence at the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council, MacDowell Colony, Robert Rauschenberg Residency, Fine Arts Work Center, Vermont Studio Center, Robert Blackburn Print Workshop, and Lower East Side Printshop. In 2012, he began a series of installations with related processions; the most recent incarnation, Balance, was supported by the US Embassy in Venezuela and hosted by the Universidad Central de Venezuela in Caracas this past fall. Beck earned a M.Arch degree from Tulane University and an MFA from the University of Texas at Austin.
