Closer to the Source (July 20,1969), The Sun is Always Setting Somewhere Else and Story, Study, Print.
"Lisa Oppenheim’s work constitutes an archaeology of visual culture. She brings the hidden, under-appreciated and repressed into view, and in the process reveals an ordering of things that goes beyond our commonplace responses. Her work ranges from damaged negatives from early 20th century news stories, personal photographs posted on ‘Flicker’ by soldiers serving in Iraq through to the constellation of the day and location of famous historical media stories." Press Release from ‘The Making of Americans’ at STORE 2008.
Lisa Oppenheim won the Illy art prize in 2007 and has shown her work widely around the globe. Recent exhibitions include: The Making of Americans, STORE, London; Sudden White (after London), GSK Contemporary at the Royal
Academy of Arts, London; Quiet Politics, Zwirner & Wirth, New York and The Why of Life, Swiss Institute, New York. Lisa Oppenheim currently lives and works in New York.
