    Join the School of Art + Art History for Visiting Artist Lecture: Aliza Nisenbaum on September 25, 2018.

    Free and open to the public. 

    Aliza Nisenbaum was born in Mexico City, and is currently based in New York. Her paintings are intimate exchanges between herself and her subjects. The artist makes portraits of undocumented Latin American immigrants, and of other distinct communities, using the focused attention of observational painting to mark those who are socially unmarked in society, along with the apparently anonymous goods that constitute a transnational trade in quotidian objects. Often lushly decorated with patterned textiles, her canvases demand close looking in keeping with her personal connections to her subjects. Recently she has presented her work at LA MOCA, The Minneapolis Institute of Art, the Whitney Biennial 2017; The Flag Art Foundation; The ICA at MECA; Biennial of the Americas, MCA, Denver; the Rufino Tamayo Painting Biennial, Museo Rufino Tamayo, Mexico City; And is represented by Anton Kern gallery. She is Assistant Professor of Visual Arts at Columbia University School of the Arts.
