Nicole Eisenman at the New Museum
Al-Ugh-Orgies, a retrospective of Nicole Eisenman's paintings and sculptures is wrapping up at the New Museum.
Peter Schjeldahl reviewed the exhibition for the New Yorker "...she has led a kind of one-woman insurgency, bidding to reshape the field, with figurative works that collapse the political into the personal and the personal into an erudite devotion to painting. She paints narrative fantasies that look bumptiously jokey at first, but reveal worlds of nuanced thought and feeling.
