Dennis Oppenheim: Galloping Through the West

By Steven S. High, Eleanor Hartney, and Diane Deming

The book illustrates Oppenheim’s fascination with the West and Western themes and his approach to the myths of the west. Images fixed in popular culture as symbols of rugged individualism or stoic machismo are undermined by a satiric black humor. This publication accompanied the Museums retrospective of Oppenheim sculptures, installations and photo montages held from October 18, 2003 to January 4, 2004. Text is in English and Spanish.
