Anna Oppermann
The Everywhere Studio
curated by Alex Gartenfeld, Stephanie Seidel and Gean Moreno
Institute of Contemporary Art Miami, USA
1 December 2017 – 26 February 2018

 

The Institute of Contemporary Art, Miami will open its new permanent home on December 1, 2017 with a major group exhibition exploring the significance of the artist’s studio, from the post-war period to the present day.

Encompassing some 100 works in painting, sculpture, video, and installation, The Everywhere Studio brings together over 50 artists from the past five decades to reveal the artist’s studio as a charged site that has both predicted and responded to broader social and economic changes of our time. Through a combination of post-war artists through emerging practitioners—including Pablo Picasso, Yves Klein, Philip Guston, Bruce Nauman, Carolee Schneemann, Dieter Roth, Andy Warhol, Martin Kippenberger, Rosemarie Trockel, Elaine Sturtevant, Anna Oppermann, Joyce Pensato, Andrea Zittel, and Tetsumi Kudo, among others—the exhibition aims to create intergenerational dialogues that enhance understanding of the most innovative artists working today.

This epic ensemble, entitled Paradoxical Intentions (To Lie the Blue Down from the Sky), is the last installation Anna Oppermann created before her untimely death in 1993. It is now premiering in the US.
