Episode No. 186 of The Modern Art Notes Podcast features artist Catherine Opie.
Opie’s most recent bodies of work are included in “Catherine Opie: Portraits and Landscapes,” on view at the Wexner Center for the Arts through August 2. The exhibition was curated by Bill Horrigan.
Opie is one of America’s best-known photographers. Her work has frequently focused on the theme of community, an investigation she continues in the portraits at the Wexner. In 2008 the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum presented a major retrospective of her work. Among the many American museums that have presented solo shows of her work are the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the Institute of Contemporary Art Boston, the Portland (Ore.) Art Museum, the Walker Art Center, the MCA Chicago and the St. Louis Art Museum. She also sits on the board of trustees of the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles.
