Meret Oppenheim: my exhibition
Natalie Dupêcher, Anne Umland
MoMA Publishing, 2021
The Swiss artist Meret Oppenheim (1913–1985) may be best known for her fur-lined teacup of 1936, but her legacy encompasses much more than this notorious Surrealist object. Over the course of some sixty years Oppenheim produced a dizzying range of unconventional paintings, drawings, sculptures, collages, and assemblages.
Published in conjunction with the first major transatlantic retrospective of Oppenheim’s career, Meret Oppenheim: My Exhibition takes its name from a series of drawings Oppenheim created in 1983, a lovingly rendered overview of her work that exemplifies her active role in shaping the narrative of her life and art. Essays by curators Nina Zimmer, Natalie Dupêcher, and Anne Umland critically examine the artist’s unruly output, bringing a new, full appreciation of an artist who has for too long been eclipsed by her most famous provocation.
