Eric Wesley's Estate

February 09, 2019

A special project with Bortolami NY accompanied by a conversation with Forrest Nash.

Eric Wesley, a lifelong resident of Los Angeles, has transported his office and all of the contents within to create a special project at ALAC. Wesley’s office features just one artwork for sale — his estate. This comprises all available artworks by Wesley, from his youth through today, for the sum of $1M.

Additionally, the on-site project will be activated in a conversation with Forrest Nash, taking place at 12pm on Saturday, February 16. Nash’s Contemporary Art Quarterly published a deep online archive of the artist’s entire practice last year. The discussion will be viewed from a distance, live and on tape, from within the closed structure of Wesley’s installation, a physical iteration of the archive only exhibited at ALAC; future viewers can only enter the project via it’s documentation on Contemporary Art Quarterly. Wesley and Nash will consider this new work in relation to the artist’s public Quarterly archive as well as Wesley’s other projects past, present and future.
