Opening day: ‘Nicole Eisenman. Where I Was, It Shall Be’

  • Fri 2 October 2020
  • 2 – 8 pm

We are pleased to invite you to the opening of ‘Nicole Eisenman. Where I Was, It Shall Be’. This presentation is Hauser & Wirth’s inaugural exhibition with the artist, bringing together a diverse multidisciplinary language through mixed media works on paper, sculpture and painting. Having established herself as a central figure in American painting throughout the 90s, Eisenman has since expanded her practice into the third dimension with international acclaim in recent years. This exhibition presents the fluid transition and interchangeable approach Eisenman takes to sculptural 2D image making, painting and larger-scale installations. Her oeuvre is distinctive in its emphasis upon the allegorical and its confident combination of autobiographical elements, with historical and fictional narratives that draw attention to contemporary socio-political conflicts. Tickets include entry to both of our autumn exhibitions: 'Nicole Eisenman. Where I Was, It Shall Be' and 'Lee Lozano'. Oudolf Field will remain open until 8 pm for visitors to enjoy and Roth Bar & Grill will be open for drinks. To make a reservation for the restaurant visit: This is a free event, all welcome. Tickets must be booked in advance.  – In order to provide a safe and positive experience for all visitors, we have reduced the number of visitors we can accommodate at one time and introduced a one way system. We ask that you arrive within 10 minutes of your booking and do not bring any additional guests that have not also booked in advance. Please continue to follow government guidance on social distancing when on site. Visitors will be required to wear a face covering over the nose and mouth when in the buildings.
