ROOM TO MOVE: NICOLE EISENMAN AT THE CONTEMPORARY AUSTIN
Emotion, individualism, unfettered expression, fruitful rebellion, and spontaneous movement are not often the makings of everyday life. But sometimes the storm and stress of life bring such things into being.
So it goes with Sturm und Drang, a solo exhibition of work by renowned artist Nicole Eisenman, on view through Aug. 16 at the Jones Center, The Contemporary Austin’s downtown venue. The show includes drawing and painting, as well as outdoor sculpture at Laguna Gloria, the museum’s sculpture park. This is Eisenman’s first exhibition in Austin, and her first solo museum show in Texas. (Followers of her work may remember that the Nasher Sculpture Center presented a grouping of her sculptures last year in conjunction with an acquisition of her work.)
