"I am queer and I have represented my own community in the work, but I don’t think that that necessarily defines my ideas. I don’t think it defines them whatsoever. What defines my work actually is more in relationship to American identity than being queer."
—Catherine Opie

Art21 celebrates LGBT Pride Month with a special post every Wednesday throughout June. This week, we highlight artist Catherine Opie, who was first featured by Art21 in the 2012 Change episode [videos]. Seen here are two recent works shown as part of a solo exhibition in early 2013 at Regen Projects in Los Angeles.
