HEADS, KISSES, BATTLES — NICOLE EISENMAN AND THE MODERNS

911

 

The art world, as a microcosm of the actual world, is another place where it’s harder to succeed as a woman. However, a lot of the conversations about “women in art” have to do with rankings, sales, worth, market-driven ideas, and it’s hard to care about the complaint that our paintings or sculptures are undervalued when the whole system of valuation is skewed. I worry more about my prices being too high than about a man’s being higher…

I think that some of the greatest women’s art of the late twentieth century was made because women were locked out of mainstream art practice. Female artists couldn’t sell their paintings at Castelli so they started making videos and working in other, alternative mediums. I actually think being locked out is kind of an interesting place to be. — Nicole Eisenman, PARIS LA*

 

 

A touring exhibition of Nicole Eisenman’s paintings and works on paper—in conversation with modern art from the collections of the Aargauer Kunsthaus, the Kunsthalle Bielefeld, the Fondation Vincent van Gogh Arles and the Kunst­museum Den Haag—is now on view in Switzerland.
