Catherine Opie: In & Around L.A.

Curated by Emily Bills and Karin Higa

February 16–March 24, 2013
Reception and award presentation: March 2, 6–8 p.m.

For over twenty-five years, Opie has photographed people, places, and buildings in and around Los Angeles. Her lens captures Bel Air facades decorated with intricate iron gates, West Adams shopkeepers with direct gazes, and undersides of overpasses. Taken as a whole, these works create a portrait of Los Angeles as a singular built environment.

Catherine Opie: In & Around L.A. features work from five distinct series that highlight Opie’s engagement with the city: Freeways (1994-95), Houses (1995-96), Landscapes (1996), In and Around Home (2004-05), and Shopkeepers (2011).

Opie is the 2013 recipient Julius Shulman Institute Excellence in Photography Award. Each year the prestigious award is given to an early or mid-career artist who honors Shulman’s legacy and our mission by challenging the way we look at physical space. Past awardees include Iwan Baan (2010), Richard Barnes (2011), and Pedro E. Guerrero (2012).
