Andrea Bowers / Catherine Opie
Bowers and Opie reveal the many similarities in their backgrounds and discuss ideas concerning documentary methodologies and community based work. The conversation spans many of the topics they regard central to their practices and responsibilities as artists, from memories and community, to activism, documentary, feminism, war, and environmentalism.
Between Artists is a series of conversation based books that document different positions and strategies of contemporary, critical visual practice. These conversations provide an opportunity for artists to speak clearly about their practice and give readers a better understanding of the power and relevance of the artists’ voice in the discussion of larger social issues.
