Dennis Oppenheim

Dennis Oppenheim's conceptual artworks include performance, sculpture, and photographs. In the early 1970s, he was in the vangard of artists using film and video in relation to performance. In a series of works produced between 1970 and 1974, Oppenheim used his body as a site to challenge the self, exploring personal risk, transformation, and communication through ritualistic performance actions and interactions.   full biography
