Large-scale exhibition catalogue published in conjunction with show held September 26, 2008 – January 7, 2009. Features essays by Dorothy Allison, Jennifer Blessing, Russell Ferguson, and Nat Trotman. "This comprehensive new exhibition catalogue, published to accompany the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum's major mid-career survey of Catherine Opie's work, is the first to gather all of the artist's key projects to date in a single volume. Opie is best known for her subtle but potent portraits of people from the queer communities of Los Angeles and San Francisco. In this definitive volume, each of Opie's series--among them Portraits, Freeways, Domestic, Icehouses and In and Around Home -- is reproduced in full color plates alongside works that were not displayed in the exhibition, allowing for the most complete overview of this important Los Angeles artist's work to date." -- publisher's statement.
