  • Audrey Wollen is a feminist theorist and visual artist based in Los Angeles. Wollen uses social media, such as Twitter and Instagram, as platforms for her work on Sad Girl Theory, a theory which posits that internalized female sadness can be used as a radical and political action, separate from masculinized forms of protests such as anger and violence. She introduces this form of protest as an alternative to masculinized anger and violence.

Calendar

Catherine Opie was born in Sandusky, Ohio and received her MFA from CalArts in 1988. Opie’s work has been exhibited extensively throughout the United States, Europe, and Japan. In 2008, a mid-career survey of her work, entitled, “Catherine Opie: American Photographer,” was on view at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York. Her photographs include series of portraits and American urban landscapes, ranging in format from large-scale color works to smaller black and white prints.  Moving from the territory of the body to the framework of the city, Opie's various photographic series are linked together by a conceptual framework of cultural portraiture.
 
Recent solo exhibitions have been organized by the Museum of Contemporary art in Los Angeles, The Hammer Museum in Los Angeles, the Wexner Center for the Arts in Columbus, OH,  and the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. Also notable are exhibitions at the Aldrich Museum in Ridgefield, CT, the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago, the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis, The Saint Louis Art Museum, the Photographers’ Gallery in London, the Institute of Contemporary Art, Boston, and the Long Beach Museum of Art.
 
Opie was a recipient of the Julius Shulman Excellence in Photography award in 2013 and a United States Artists Fellowship in 2006. She is currently working on an installation for the new Los Angeles Federal Courthouse, to debut the fall of 2016. Her book, 700 Nimes Road, a portrait of Elizabeth Taylor, was recently published by Prestel. Opie lives and works in Los Angeles and is a Professor of Photography at UCLA.
