Catherine Opie at LACMA

LA based photographer Catherine Opie has a new show up at LACMA that I am looking forward to seeing later this week. For this series Opie points her camera art high-school football players across seven states, exploring issues of masculinity, community, and national identity. The exhibition is curated by Britt Salvesen, curator and head of the Wallis Annenberg Photography Department, as well as the Prints and Drawings Department. Ms. Opie also has a book that came out in 2008 that looks gorgeous with a forward by Dorothy Allison, one of my favorite writers, who is way overdue for a new book herself. The LACMA show runs through October 17, 2010.
