On Thursday, September 15, Landmarks celebrated its newest commission, C-010106 by artist Sarah Oppenheimer. Sited on a newly constructed pedestrian bridge at the Cockrell School of Engineering, C-010106 consists of two glass structures that create unexpected sightlines and opportunities for social exchange.
The online celebration opened with remarks by Landmarks’ Founding Director and Curator Andrée Bober, along with UT Austin President Jay Hartzell, Provost Sharon Wood, Cockrell School of Engineering Dean Roger Bonnecaze, and College of Fine Arts Dean Ramón Rivera-Servera. The event featured a video premiere of a new work of choreography by ARCOS, inspired by C-010106 and also an artist video spotlighting Oppenheimer’s commission. A conversation between Bober, Oppenheimer, and curatorial contributor Lumi Tan followed, which explored Oppenheimer’s process for creating and engineering the work, the ways in which it responds to the site, and the artist’s interest in the built environment.
We invite you to learn more about C-010106 in an essay by Tan that can be found under “Essay” on Oppenheimer’s artist page.
C-010106 may be viewed in-person at any time on the Peyton Yates Family Bridge at the Gary L Thomas Energy Engineering Building.
