Susanne Vielmetter Los Angeles Projects is pleased to present our first solo exhibition of Nicole Eisenman’s work in the entire gallery space. Entitled “A Show Born of Fear”, the exhibition will feature new paintings, drawings and prints mapping out a space were personal life and philosophical concerns intersect. Eisenman, known in equal measures for her bitingly humorous attacks on art historical conventions and the relationships between the sexes, focuses in this new body of work on issues that reach beyond into fundamental questions of life and the future of humankind.

More than any verbal description the enclosed diagram by the artist captures the spirit of this new body of work.

Johnson Museum of Art, Ithaca, NY, at the Centraal Museum Utrecht, Utrecht, and at the San Francisco Art Institute, San Francisco.
