Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum exhibits Mid-career Survey of Catherine Opie

opie_joanne_betsy_oliviaSince the early 1990s, Catherine Opie has produced a complex body of photographic work, adopting such diverse genres as studio portraiture, landscape photography, and urban street photography to explore notions of communal, sexual, and cultural identity. From her early portraits of transgender people and performance artists to her expansive urban landscapes of cities like Minneapolis, Los Angeles, and New York, Opie has offered profound insights into the conditions in which communities form and the terms in which they are defined. All the while she has maintained a strict formal rigor, working in stark and provocative color as well as richly toned black-and-white. On exhibit through 7 January, 2009 at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum.
