ICA SPEAKS: Nicole Eisenman will take place at Palm Court in partnership with the Miami Design District.

The Institute of Contemporary Art presents ICA SPEAKS, a series of lectures highlighting artists from the museum’s permanent collection. ICA welcomes painter and recent MacArthur Fellow recipient Nicole Eisenman, who is known for her paintings, drawings, and mixed-media works of cartoonish figures that evoke life-like pathos. Eisenman employs various techniques culled from art history to present a deeply personal, expressive body of work that explores matters of interpersonal, political, and economic interest relevant to the human condition.

About Nicole Eisenman

Nicole Eisenman (b. 1965, Verdun, France) is a painter who lives and works in Brooklyn, New York. Her work has been the subject of recent solo exhibitions at the Museum of Contemporary Art, San Diego (2015); the Institute of Contemporary Art, Philadelphia (2014); the Contemporary Art Museum of St. Louis (2014), and Studio Voltaire, London (2012). Eisenman was featured in the 2012 Whitney Biennial and the Carnegie International in 2013, where she received the Carnegie Prize. In September 2015, Eisenman was awarded a MacArthur Fellowship (commonly referred to as a Genius Grant) for her contribution to “expanding the critical and expressive capacity of the Western figurative tradition through works that engage contemporary social issues and phenomena.”
