Dynamic equilibrium: on developing degrees of freedom.

Sarah Oppenheimer’s (SM '05) calculated manipulation of standardized spaces disrupts the embodied experience of spatial continuity, reorienting and clarifying the experience of the built environment. Recent solo projects include S-281913 (Pérez Art Museum Miami 2016), S-337473 (Wexner Center for the Arts 2017), S-399390 (MUDAM Luxembourg 2016), 33-D (Kunsthaus Baselland 2014) and W-120301, an architecturally embedded permanent commission at the Baltimore Museum of Art (2012). Her work has been exhibited at such venues as the Andy Warhol Museum (2012); the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego (2009); Art Unlimited, Art Basel (2009); Skulpturens Hus (Stockholm); the Saint Louis Art Museum; the Mattress Factory; the Drawing Center; and the Sculpture Center. Ms. Oppenheimer is currently a senior critic at the Yale University School of Art.
