With Sarah Oppenheimer, Ines Goldbach, and Julian Rose.
Boundaries delimit inhabited space, shaping the material and immaterial flow along its contours. Holes distort these contours. The presence of holes produces blind spots, absorbing the possibility of communication and placing it on hold. Simultaneously, holes shuffle transmission, re-routing flow through the network of inhabitable space.
A new publication by Mills College Art Museum explores the potential of this distortion of the visual and social fields through an examination of two recent projects by artist Sarah Oppenheimer.
Sarah Oppenheimer’s first solo exhibition was held in 2002 at the Drawing Center, New York. Since that time, her work has been exhibited internationally. Her projects include W-12302, an architecturally embedded permanent commission at the Baltimore Museum of Art (2012) and 33-D, a double threshold at Kunsthaus Baselland (2014). Her work has also been shown at The Andy Warhol Museum; the Museum of Contemporary Art, San Diego; the Saint Louis Art Museum; and the Sculpture Center, Long Island City. Upcoming solo exhibitions include projects at MUDAM, Luxembourg 2016; the Perez Art Museum, Miami 2016; and the Wexner Center for the Arts, Ohio 2017.
Books will be available for sale at the event.
