CATHERINE OPIE’S FILM “THE MODERNIST” DEBUTS IN MMA-DESIGNED THEATRE AT REGEN PROJECTS
Catherine Opie’s first film, The Modernist, is now on view in a MMA designed theatre space with the main gallery at Regen Projects. The film is composed of over 800 black and white still images that present a dystopic view of Los Angeles. MMA constructed the theatre within the gallery in which visitors can view the film. Its design mimics the lines and curves of the various modernist buildings portrayed in the film.
