Nicole Eisenman


The artist’s most comprehensive monograph to date, traversing thirty years of Eisenman’s engagement with the technological, political and social changes which have shaped our lives.

From drawing and painting to print-making and sculpture, Nicole Eisenman’s practice combines formal experimentation with wide-ranging references to art history. Her critical and often humorous commentary on the ever-changing nature of public life consistently challenges power structures and normative conceptions of gender.

Nicole Eisenman: What Happened documents the breadth of the artist’s career with over 200 color illustrations, explored in ten newly commissioned texts. Essays by curators Mark Godfrey and Monika Bayer-Wermuth survey developments in Eisenman’s work since the 1990s, while Chloe Wvma considers Eisenman’s recent engagements with national and institutional politics.
