Location: Lower Gallery
Nicole Eisenman investigates contemporary issues through the historically charged mediums of drawing and painting. In her work, she utilizes technical skill and incorporates art-historical influences to innovatively address social concerns. While Eisenman’s figurative style references a range of academic traditions—from WPA murals to surrealism—her razor-sharp wit and intimate subject matter reveal a language that is completely her own. Tonight, join Eisenman as she opens up her own practice of drawing from live models to lead a figure-drawing class in the Museum’s galleries.
Free with Museum admission, which is pay-what-you-wish on Fridays from 6–9 pm; there are no special tickets or reservations.
This event is presented in conjunction with Carnegie Hall’s American Mavericks series.
