Walead Beshty's artistic work explores how the art system influences art production and how resulting works can shape this. His work is based on an awareness of the interactions between the social context and the social conditions: materials, production conditions, studio, and exhibition spaces, transport systems, institutions and the environment of education, criticism, the public, collectors, the art market, etc.—all these are the basis of his work. They help determine how a work of art is created, presented, and ultimately perceived.
