Sarah Oppenheimer’s work spans the disciplinary boundaries between sculpture and architecture. She received a BA from Brown University in 1995 and an MFA in painting from Yale University in 1999. Oppenheimer’s first solo exhibition was held in 2002 at the Drawing Center, New York and since that time, her work has been exhibited internationally. Oppenheimer has been the recipient of many prestigious awards including the Guggenheim Fellowship (2007); the Louis Comfort Tiffany Foundation (2010-11); the Rome Prize (2010–11) and the Joan Mitchell Foundation fellowship (2011). She is a critic in painting/printmaking at Yale University.
This event is presented in conjunction with the exhibition Sarah Oppenheimer on view at MCAM from September 13-December 14, 2014.
