February 7, 6pm
Join us Wednesday, February 7, at 6:00 PM for the inaugural Winter-Miller Lecture, to be given by artist Nicole Eisenman.
Nicole Eisenman (b. 1965, Verdun, France) 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.
The Winter-Miller Lecture is made possible through a generous gift by the family of Eleanor Lindor Winter ’43 , and has been organized by Eleanor Linder Winter ’43 Intern Rachel Rosenfeld ’18. Rosenfeld is a studio art major, with a concentration in painting, and a film & media studies minor. Her internship, a year-long pre-professional program in the Tang's Engagement and Curatorial departments, involves developing and implementing a number of public programs, including the Winter-Miller Lecture.
