Spectator Sports

"Spectator Sports" is available to view online on the Art Gallery of St. Albert website featuring Edmonton-based artist and Alum Kyle Beal.

In a world governed by rules and social and societal pressures, life is a stage and we are all performing.

Beal’s self-deprecating and self-conscious conceptual art uses word play, metaphor and allusion to provide a unique take on the curious conditions that make up modern life. Beal’s drawings, sculptures and installations deal with topics of social change, human condition, death and technology. Meticulous renderings of collapsed concert stages show the potential collapse of established systems. Large scale sculptural works utilize found and altered objects to create a loose self-portrait, amusing viewers with Beal’s distinct brand of self-critical humour, eliciting reflection and self-analysis.
