D-33 is the most recent entry into Oppenheimer’s typology of holes. Responding to a history of architectural typology, Oppenheimer systematizes the spatial continuity created by architectural rupture. In this exhibition, Oppenheimer investigates the ways in which perforations in architectural boundaries impact spatial navigation and visualization.
Oppenheimer was awarded the Rome Prize Fellowship in 2010-2011 and the Joan Mitchell Foundation Grant in 2011. Recent exhibitions include D-17 at Rice University, Houston, TX; Automatic Cities at the Museum of Contemporary Art in San Diego, CA; Currents: Sarah Oppenheimer at the Saint Louis Art Museum, MO; and Inner and Outer Space at the Mattress Factory, in Pittsburgh, PA. Oppenheimer lectures extensively and was recently featured in a number of catalogues published exclusively about her work, including “Keunstler Kritishes Lexikon der Gegenwartskunst” with an essay by Ines Goldbach, “Sarah Oppenheimer D-17,” published by Rice University Art Gallery, Houston, with an interview and introduction by Kimberly Davenport, and “Sarah Oppenheimer MF-142” at Annely Juda Fine Art with an essay by Cay Sophie Rabinowitz.
