Nicole Eisenman in Conversation
with Faye Hirsch

Eisenman, a 2015 MacArthur Fellow, was recently the subject of a mid-career survey Al-ugh-ories, at the New Museum, as well as a retrospective entitled Dear Nemesis, Nicole Eisenman 1993-2013, organized by the Contemporary Art Museum, St. Louis (2014). She will be joined by noted editor and critic Faye Hirsch, who has published widely on contemporary art, including more than 100 articles and reviews in Art in America, where she was a senior editor from 2003 to 2013. Advance reservations are required, download a ticket here.

Established with the generous support of the Jordan Schnitzer Family Foundation, this annual program aims to honor and raise public consciousness about the unique ways in which contemporary artists use printmaking in their artistic practice. Sparked by a keen interest in the inventiveness of printmaking and carrying on a family legacy of collecting art, Jordan Schnitzer began collecting prints in 1988. Today, the family’s collection exceeds 9,500 works and its foundation manages an active lending program aimed at making fine art easily available to qualified institutions, especially those in less-served communities. View the Foundation’s current exhibitions and events.
