New York-based artist Sarah Oppenheimer is internationally recognized for her architectural interventions that explore how space is animated and experienced.
Organized by the Mills College Art Museum, this exhibition presents a unique examination of Oppenheimer's artistic process and her current research. For every large-scale spatial intervention that the artist has made, an extensive archive of material is created that has never been exhibited. This includes both hand and digital drawings; aluminum, glass, and wood prototypes; three- dimensional models; light studies; and customized computer code, among other materials. Oppenheimer's exhibit will focus on this extensive body of unseen work, highlighting a set of key projects that demonstrate the physical and conceptual specificity of her practice, particularly as it effects her current methods and ideas regarding materiality, light, perception, and spatial engagement.
Sarah Oppenheimer is supported in part by the Graham Foundation for Advanced Studies in the Fine Arts.
