The largest exhibition of Albert Oehlen’s work in the United States to date, Albert Oehlen: Woods near Oehle illustrates the depth and complexity of an artist who has been at the forefront of artistic innovation since the late 1970s.
A thought-provoking and unconventional survey, including work from the past 30 years, Albert Oehlen: Woods near Oehle reflects Oehlen’s complex layering of methods, subject matter, and viewpoints, while also celebrating an artist who continues to radically question the limits of painting.
In conjunction with the exhibition, the CMA produced a “boxed set” containing a newly pressed EP, the exhibition catalogue, and an anthology of texts and images edited by Christopher Williams.
