Nicole Eisenman (b. 1965, France, lives and works in Brooklyn, USA) works across painting, drawing, installation and sculpture. She received the prestigious MacArthur Foundation Fellowship award in 2015 for ‘expanding the expressive potential of the figurative tradition in works that engage contemporary social issues and restore cultural significance to the representation of the human form.’ Additionally, she has been awarded the Guggenheim Fellowship (1996), Carnegie Prize (2013), the Suzanne Deal Booth/FLAG Art Foundation Prize (2018), and was inducted into the American Academy of Arts and Letters in 2018.
