Artists on Art - Catherine Opie on Thomas Eakins

Catherine Opie’s photography is extraordinary for the range of its gaze, taking in our institutions and fringes, icons and outcasts, rituals and taboos. Her landscapes, portraits, still lifes, and interiors are, collectively, a profound document of contemporary America, and have been the focus of many solo exhibitions, including, at LACMA, Catherine Opie: Figure and Landscape (2010) and Catherine Opie: O (2016).

For Artists on Art, Catherine Opie speaks on Wrestlers by Thomas Eakins.
