Nicole Eisenman speaks behind a podium

Nicole Eisenman has created a body of psychologically revealing work that includes installations, drawings, animations, and paintings. Her unique sense of humor permeates her work. Simultaneously playful, biting, and raunchy, she challenges cultural and social norms associated with gender and sexuality, popular culture, and the current art scene.

Eisenman has been awarded a Guggenheim Fellowship for Creative Arts, a MacArthur Fellowship, and a Carnegie Prize. Her work has been exhibited around the world, including at the New Museum in New York, the ICA in Philadelphia, and twice at the Whitney Biennial. Opener 17: Nicole Eisenman—The Way We Weren’t was exhibited at the Tang in 2009-2010. A native of France, Eisenman graduated from the Rhode Island School of Design in 1987, and lives and works in Brooklyn, New York.
