EDGE examines potential partners in working with BIM beyond your firm’s current capabilities: BIM coordinators, consultants, modeling services, others.

A Closer Look at Catherine Opie

Catherine Opie, Tavir (Gas Station), inkjet print, Courtesy Regen Projects, Los Angeles © Catherine Opie The built environment of Los Angeles has served as a muse for Catherine Opie for over 25 years. From the city’s freeways to the gated homes of Bel Air to the shopkeepers of West Adams, Opie has focused her lens on all.

On Saturday, March 2, Catherine Opie will join the ranks of previous awardees Iwan Baan and Richard Barnes as the recipient of the 4th annual Julius Shulman Institute Excellence in Photography Award. Opie will receive the award at the opening of the exhibition Catherine Opie: In & Around L.A. at the Woodbury University Hollywood Gallery (WUHO). Included in the show—and exhibited for the first time in LA—will be photographs from her Shopkeepers series documenting small businesses in Opie’s West Adams neighborhood.

We had a chance to talk with Emily Bills, who, along with Karin Higa, curated the exhibition, Opie and her work.

Big City Forum: The Hub at WUHO

Soo Kim (Photo Courtesy of Pasadena Museum of California Art)Big City Forum: The Hub presents an evening of spatial spectacle on Thursday October 11 at Woodbury University in Hollywood. The Hub is designed as a lab for ideas that encourage cross-disciplinary exchanges between creative fields. This is the first of three separate collaborative presentations centered around the concept of space and our relationship to both personal and urban scale formations. 

Part One of the series focuses on the work of three artists who investigate notions of liminal space--Soo Kim, Siri Kaur, and Christina Ondrus. Each body of work explores issues of absence and presence and the varied ways in which we experience time and space. Les Figues Press will also curate readings during the exhibit that will examine similar themes in temporality.

Opening night of the forum is October 11 at 7:00 pm. Literary readings will be held on October 24 at 6:00 pm.
