Anna Oppermann, Raumeprobleme, 1978-84, Mixed media ensemble, Courtesy Anna Oppermann Estate and Galerie Barbara Thumm, Berlin

If you haven’t seen the current show at the Presentation House Gallery, there are only a couple days left to check it out!

You’ll find work by local artist Andrea Pinheiro, and the first exhibitions in Canada by two German artists, Anna Oppermann (1940-1993) and Marianne Wex (b.1937), who deserve more visibility, to say the least!

All three artists present works that draw from archival documentation. Across the different media of the show, the accumulation of material in each of the three artist’s works question the relationship of representation to such themes as: how body language is determined in women and men (Wex), the history of atomic bomb detonations (Pinheiro), hoarding and ordering ephemera from a personal history (Oppermann).
