    Catherine Opie is joined by art historian and academic Jonathan D. Katz to discuss her work. Opie's political portraiture and documentary photography has consistently reflected on her interest in gender, identity and community. From her breakthrough series Being and Having (1991), which portrayed her friends from the queer, leather and BDSM communities on the West Coast, to images that unpack the gloss of American culture, highlighting racial and class divides, Opie’s body of work is a searing portrait of contemporary America.

    Catherine Opie: Installation for moCa, Cleveland 

     

    Catherine Opie’s site-responsive work The Outside-Inside, Installation for moCa Cleveland (2019) reimagines the interior architecture of moCa as a window to the larger landscape of Lake Erie. Opie’s installation consists of eight different images, each of which was shot onsite in Cleveland as part of a 2011 invitation to make new work for the Cleveland Clinic. Transforming the resulting images into a large-scale architectural installation, Opie’s The Outside-Inside, Installation for moCa Cleveland is an immersive yet intimate portrait of a specific place, Cleveland, while simultaneously a poetic mediation on the passage of time.
