Installation and Figurative Artist Nicole Eisenman to Discuss Her Work Oct. 23

October 09, 2008

October 9, 2008 — The University of Virginia’s McIntire Department of Art will present a public lecture by installation artist and figurative painter Nicole Eisenman Oct. 23 at 6:30 p.m. in Campbell Hall, room 160. The talk is free and open to the public.

Eisenman, who works and lives in New York City, has had solo exhibitions in Zurich, Berlin, Mexico City, Los Angeles and New York in the last three years.

Artist and writer Arnold J. Kemp wrote of Eisenman: "Her drawing style is reminiscent of the WPA and artists such as Thomas Hart Benton, Reginald Mangold and Paul Cadmus, but hers is a complexity that belies its accessibility."

Eisenman is the recipient of a Joan Mitchell and Guggenheim award. She is represented by Leo Koenig Inc. in New York City.

Her U.Va. lecture is sponsored by the McIntire Department of Art and the Provost Arts Enhancement Fund. For information, contact Millie Dean at 434-924-6123 or mwd2f@virginia.edu.
