The exhibition year comes to an end with a solo exhibition by American artist Nicole Eisenman (b. 1965 in Verdun, France). In the 1990’s Eisenman made a name for herself in the New York art scene by constructing epic paintings with political and private motives. Despite her stylistic versatility which she confidently sets against fixed definitions and constraints, Eisenman developed an unmistakable style by combining classical painting styles and composition forms with influences throughout art history, underground and popular culture as well as current political and societal events.

Most recently, Nicole Eisenman caused a stir with her reinterpretation of a baroque fountain for the Skulptur Projekte Münster 2017. At the Vienna Secession in 2017, she displayed completed paintings and drawings which arose as a direct result of the last US presidential election. Eisenman frequently made power structures and the powerless individual the subject of discussion by means of apocalyptic scenes. Espacially for the exhibition in Baden-Baden produced new sculputures are shown in Baden-Baden aswell.
