Julian Opie: Verlag fur moderne Kunst Nurnberg (German)
This fully illustrated catalogue has been published to accompany the most comprehensive exhibition by Julian Opie of recent years. For the exhibition Opie has worked with the Ikon building as a whole, comparing a journey through the exhibition with a jourrney through the outside world. The show (and catalogue) presents sound, painting, sculpture and video, including roadscape wallpaintings and a new series of landscape, cityscape and seascape paintings. The exhibition spills out of Ikon’s galleries into unexpected places – the stairwell, the reception area and Oozells Square, Brindleyplace. A specially commissioned site-specific work, visible from both outside and inside the gallery, is installed in the lift shaft.
