Dennis Oppenheim: Body to Perfomance, 1969-73D

This volume provides a comprehensive account of Dennis Oppenheim’s radical art practices of this explosive five-year period. Providing a principal means of spilling his Conceptual Art beyond the object or the gallery to investigate real world and real time embedded processes and places, Oppenheim s steps into performance from 1969 enacted the artist s body as the agent, material, and place of art, and extended his work toward multiple spaces and times, including cross-generational exchange. Directing the viewer toward his body as the source and material of his works, Oppenheim s procedures continue to critique the conventional material and conceptual limits of both sculpture and performance. This monograph follows Oppenheim s conceptual performance works in slide, film, video, installation and photographic form from 1969-1973, including a substantial framing essay, a newly edited interview with Willoughby Sharp, and extensive extracts from the artist s contemporaneous notes and statements.D
