Catherine Opie: Figure and Landscape
UNITED STATES
LOS ANGELES  •  Los Angeles County Museum of Art  •  Ongoing
 
 

In this show, LA-based photographer Catherine Opie's primary focus is high-school football, a subject that allowed Opie to explore issues of masculinity, community, and national identity in the United States.

Over the last three years, Opie photographed football games and players in seven states across America: Alaska, California, Hawaii, Louisiana, New York, Ohio, and Texas. Atmospheric cues locate each regional site, while gestures and gazes reveal the adolescent players’ disparate psychologies.

Looking past the clichés associated with football, Opie perceives diversity in the individuals and communities that celebrate the game.
