This Week’s Must See Events: Bad Assery Abounds
Art F City
If there’s one Catherine Opie photograph everyone remembers it’s the portrait of her, suckling a year old infant. It references the old Dutch paintings in which nursing babies often outsized their mothers, while presenting the dyke sexual identity in a nurturing role. This show, which will take place in the gallery’s location in Chelsea and the Lower East Side will juxtapose the work she’s become known for—new portraits inspired by European painting—with abstract photos of American landscapes. We expect that Opie will be pushing buttons as usual.
