Catherine Opie
Feb 24-Mar 30 '96

Los Angeles-based photographer Catherine Opie became well known to New Yorkers with her inclusion in the 1995 Whitney Biennial exhibition. Her portraits of members of L.A.'s pierced and tattooed fetish community received wide acclaim for their poignancy, dignity and quiet beauty.

Her current exhibition continues her involvement with the ideas of community and autobiography. She is exhibiting 38 platinum photographs of the L.A. freeways and large color photographs of Beverly Hills house facades.

Catherine Opie lives and works in Los Angeles.
