KEITH WALSH - WALSH AND YOUNG
Keith Walsh’s works were made between 2014 and 2020. He selected examples from this body of work that would elicit a conceptual or experiential correspondence with the work of his fellow artist, Kent Young, also featured in PRJCTLA’s front space.
Walsh’s drawings, paintings, and sculpture, are examples of several visual phases of Walsh’s continuous work which unfolded during the Obama and Trump years. They mark a trajectory of his investigation of the dialectical and interlocking histories of American democracy and politics. From the 1960’s liberalism and civil rights, to Black Power and the socialist left, they reach out to the present time. The formal or stylistic shifts from one phase to another are transcended by the presence of language, which documents the shifts in the artist’s research, understanding and recollection of these historical periods, as well as the degrees of authorship which can be found in his voice as a white artist and ally.
Keith Walsh lives in Inglewood, California. He has been exhibited at numerous venues including most recently at The Dallas Biennial at Permanent Research Project, Dallas, TX, Los Angeles Municipal Gallery, Kleefeld Contemporary Art Museum, Long Beach CA, Long Beach City College, CA, Golden West College, Huntington Beach, SoLA, Los Angeles, Gregory Escalante Los Angeles, CB1, Ochi Projects, Los Angeles, and Elephant, Los Angeles. His work has been featured in Artforum, Artsy, Art and Cake, Artillery, Artweek, Hyperallergic, The LA Times, the LAWeekly, and Visual Art Source, among others. Walsh earned an MFA in Studio Art from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts Boston and Tufts University in 1992.
