Tanya Bonakdar Gallery is very pleased to announce Lisa Oppenheim: A Durable Web, the artist’s second solo presentation with the gallery. On view September 7– October 21, 2017, the exhibition features three new bodies of work that explore themes related to the body and labor within the history of photography and American textile manufacturing.
In her new exhibition, Oppenheim investigates this particular material history as it relates specifically to women’s work. As textile production shifted to factories and mills from domestic spaces in the 19th century, the relationship of object to labor became more abstract and less directly connected to the body of the maker. Recalling Marxist ideas about Capitalist labor and its dissociation from material goods, Oppenheim revives this relationship through her own production processes.
