Published by Skira. By Nick Kaye,?Amy van Winkle Oppenheim.
A comprehensive view of Dennis Oppenheim’s radical art practices during this explosive five-year period.
Dennis Oppenheim was a pioneer in the fields of earthworks, conceptual art, body art, and performance. This monograph follows the studio practice, public performance works, and gallery and museum shows that took place between 1969–1973 with documentation of conceptual performance works in slide, film, video, and photographic form exhibited alone or as a component of installations. A special emphasis will be how works such as Arm and Wire, 1969; Reading Position for Second Degree Burn, 1970; and Wishing Well, 1973, are made with diverse mediums and modes of work in which the idea and act of time-based performance is central.

New York-based Dennis Oppenheim has been active in many realms: conceptual and performance art, earthworks and photography. He was recently recognized with a Lifetime Achievement Award at the 2007 Vancouver Sculpture Biennale. Following his early earthworks, Oppenheim began creating the whimsical, architecturally-derived public sculpture for which he is known today--works such as "Tempest in a Teacup" (1992), a steel and glass piece located in the mountains of Andorra, which responds to the proximity of the sky and changing weather conditions. This overview of public commissions includes recent works like the large, football-shaped "Electric Field" (2006) at Oregon State University, which employs fluorescent lights to portray the strategic movements possible in a game.

One of the most adventurous American artists working today, Dennis Oppenheim has centered his artistic investigations on the dialogue between art and the self. An active innovator since the sixties, Oppenheim has pioneered both body art and so-called land art. Most famous for his whimsical, large-scale installation pieces, Oppenheim has worked with a variety of mediums: from performance and video art, to three dimensional moving machine pieces, and sculptural works employing unorthodox materials. This book is a comprehensive compendium of Oppenheim's art, his most complete monograph to date, and includes an interview with the artist. From a giant metallic upside-down church, to a group of human-sized hot dogs in sleeping bags gathered around a campfire, Oppenheim's work is alternately strange, humorous, and fascinating.
