By the mid-1980s, Oppenheim made sculpture based on the transformation of everyday objects. From the mid-1990s until his death in 2011, he focused on the production of large-scale permanent structures that combined sculpture and architecture.

He received a Guggenheim Foundation Fellowship in 1969, National Endowment for the Arts Fellowships in 1974 and 1982, and a Lifetime Achievement Award at the Vancouver Sculpture Biennale in 2007.

Mia Feuer’s latest installation, Mesh, is, at the time of this writing, disintegrating. Or, more accurately, what’s breaking apart isMesh’s centerpiece: a lumpy, unidentifiable form laid out on the floor of Locust Projects, a gallery in Miami.
