Nicole Eisenman: Al-ugh-ories

Edited with interview by Massimiliano Gioni, Helga Christoffersen. Text by Grace Dunham, Eileen Myles.

"Death and the Maiden" (2009) is reproduced from 'Nicole Eisenman: Al-ugh-ories.'One of the most important painters of her generation, Brooklyn-based artist Nicole Eisenman (born 1965) combines the imaginative with the lucid, the absurd with the banal, and the stereotypical with the countercultural and queer. In her narrative compositions she draws equally from art history and popular culture, making way for accessible and humorous, yet also critical and poignant images of contemporary life. Gathering a body of work produced over the last two decades, Nicole Eisenman: Al-ugh-ories marks the artist’s 2016 exhibition at the New Museum and dedicates special attention to the symbolic nature of her depictions of individuals and groups. This fully illustrated catalogue includes an interview with the artist by Massimiliano Gioni and Helga Christoffersen, an essay by writer Grace Dunham and a contribution by poet Eileen Myles.

"Death and the Maiden" (2009) is reproduced from 'Nicole Eisenman: Al-ugh-ories.'

PRAISE AND REVIEWS

Art in America

Tatiana Istomina

Among the most important New York painters working today.

CULTURED

Jacqueline Lewis

Eisenman’s work goes beyond the conflict between the sexes to evoke the complicated psychological states we all experience…Disruptive in their poignancy, Eisenman’s paintings hint at the future in their testament to celebrating the multitude of alternatives to a singular, masculine gaze.

Nicole Eisenman: Al-ugh-ories, Selfie

Order now – we only have a few more copies of Al-ugh-ories, the catalogue to Nicole Eisenman's acclaimed recent exhibition at the New Museum. "Since it first gained attention, Eisenman’s work has been described with terms like 'punk,' 'queer,' 'feminist,' and 'radical,'" Grace Dunham writes. "But it would be an oversimplification of her career to relegate her to the position of outsider because of her identity as a gay woman in an overwhelmingly straight, cis-male profession. Eisenman’s paintings fold the marginal and the dominant into one another. She paints freaks and outliers using a visual lexicon that recalls the classics. She has criticized the inner functions of the art market while also benefiting from its institutional support. The emotional landscape of her paintings is queer to those who wish to see it that way; viewers can also opt out of perversion and simply engage with the technique of a master. The way in which Eisenman moves back and forth between the middle and the margins is not an inconsistency: it is the premise of her approach." continue to blog
