Time: 4:00 PM – 6:00 PM
Location: Manetti Shrem Museum

Aliza Nisenbaum’s paintings are intimate exchanges between herself and her subjects. The artist makes portraits of undocumented Latin American immigrants and other communities, using the focused attention of observational painting to mark those who are socially unmarked in society, along with the anonymous goods that constitute a transnational trade in quotidian objects.

Nisenbaum, a native of Mexico, lives and works in New York City. She was in the 2017 Biennial at the Whitney Museum, and has had recent solo exhibitions at the Minneapolis Institute of Art and White Columns in New York. She is an assistant professor at the Columbia University School of Arts.

This event is sponsored by the Department of Art and Art History, and the UC Davis College of Letters and Science.

The event is free and open to the public.
