Catherine Opie's The Modernist

Time travel and a ruined future figure prominently in the opening of Catherine Opie's exhibition and film The Modernist. The Los Angeles artist has for decades examined outliers such as the brutality of freeways, the LGBTQ+ community and icehouses of the Midwest. The Modernist uses similar themes as a focus to strike up a metaphysical dialogue with artist Chris Marker's 1962 film, La Jetée. Both Opie and Marker share a fascination with the emotional radioactivity of time travel and the threat of nuclear annihilation, so here's a rare chance for you to feel both terrible and cultured at the same time.
