Lisa Beck works with a variety of mediums and modes, including painting, sculpture, and installation — often in combination — involving inner and outer space, landscape, reflection, and the paradoxical relationship of something and nothing.
Her work has been exhibited in the US and internationally since the 1980's at venues including MoMA PS1 (NYC), MAMCO - Musée d'Art Moderne et Contemporain (Geneva, Switzerland), and the Tang Museum (Saratoga Springs, NY). "Endless," a survey show of Beck’s works from 1986-2012, was presented in 2013 as a hors le murs project of la Salle de bains in Lyon, France. “The Middle of Everywhere,” a monograph on her work, was published in 2015.
Lisa Beck has been awarded residencies at the Marie Walsh Sharpe Space Program in Brooklyn, NY and at Yaddo in Saratoga Springs, NY. She lives and works in Brooklyn, NY.
