Aliza Nisenbaum To Create Large-Scale Works During Three-Month Residency at the Minneapolis Institute of Art
Residency Will Culminate in Nisenbaum’s First Solo Museum Exhibition This Fall

“MOIA’s NYC Woman’s Cabinet” 2016. Aliza Nisenbaum. Oil on linen, 85 x 68 inches.

This summer, the Minneapolis Institute of Art (Mia) will host acclaimed New York City-based painter Aliza Nisenbaum as its artist-in-residence. Nisenbaum, whose work probes the politics of representation by bringing often-marginalized immigrant communities to the fore in life-sized portraits, will live and work in Minneapolis May 24–August 25, 2017. During her residency, she will invite members of local communities—including the city’s Phillips and Whittier neighborhoods, which have large, diverse immigrant populations—to her portrait studio adjacent to the museum. Nisenbaum will create three large-scale group portraits to be displayed in Mia’s galleries this fall; it will be the artist’s first solo museum exhibition.

Born in Mexico City, and currently an assistant professor at Columbia University School of the Arts, Aliza Nisenbaum has dedicated her practice to creating intimate, vividly colored oil-on-canvas portraits of undocumented immigrants in the New York City area. Through her artistic process, Nisenbaum seeks to transform the traditional artist-sitter relationship; her lengthy portrait sessions allow her to deeply engage with the people and communities she paints to explore the ethical experiences of exchange, engage in new means for human connection, and shed light on immigrant groups too often left in the shadows.

“Minneapolis is a city brimming with an incredible wealth of cultures and communities,” said Nisenbaum. “I’m thrilled to partner with Mia to discover this diverse place, and to get to know the individuals, families, and groups that make it so. Face-to-face interactions and relationships are at the core of my practice, and I look forward to creating work that brings different people into solidarity with each other. It’s more than the issue of immigration; it’s about healing, attention to one another, care, and giving a voice to those who need it.”

Nisenbaum’s portrait studio will be housed in a brownstone provided by Mia. The dedicated time and space will enable the artist to investigate the social and civic relationships that exist between the less visible populations around the museum and the institution itself. Mia will document Nisenbaum’s process through photographs and video, which will be presented alongside the finished works in the upcoming exhibition. Additional details about the exhibition will be announced in the coming months.

“At Mia, we are committed to celebrating and strengthening the many communities that make up our audiences, and continually expanding and deepening our relationships with those around us,” said Gabriel Ritter, Mia’s curator of contemporary art. “Aliza’s artistic practice aims to empower those who are underrepresented or traditionally underserved by cultural institutions such as ours through painting. Her residency and subsequent exhibition seek to build meaningful relationships between artist and sitter, as well as Mia and its neighbors, to address these gaps and work toward a more honest representation of the neighboring Phillips and Whittier communities.”

Foley Gallery Subtext II: Meditations, by Wyatt GalleryMay 17th

["Foley Gallery"]
"Untitled" by Balint Zsako
Wyatt Gallery
Subtext II: Meditations 

May 17th - June 25th 2017
Reception: May 17th 6-8pm

Foley Gallery is pleased to present Subtext II: Meditations, a solo exhibition featuring works by Wyatt Gallery. This will be the artist's second solo exhibition with the gallery.

Meditations move the Subtext series towards a closer connection with the artist's spiritual practice of meditation by identifying opportunities for an urban-mindfulness experience. The photographs in this series are sourced from found advertising spaces throughout the New York City subway system. Years of glue, paper, scraping, painting, gluing...repeat, have left clues of the palimpsests that have been recorded for years if not decades.

Gallery transforms these evolving abstractions into UV cured photographic plates, that reference the period of black paintings by Robert Rauschenberg in the 1950's or the French décollage art of the 1960's Nouveau Réalisme movement. The viewer is presented with a scene that may have only been visible for hours, maybe days - until the next advertisement is placed on top, transforming the space yet again. By leaving the walls as found, un-manipulated and uncropped, Subtext challenges the ability to let go of control and accept what is, while reminding the viewer that all is perfect in its imperfection and our inner scars create our true beauty.

Meditations continue the dialogue of the original Subtext series by getting further in tune with Gallery's personal spiritual practice. Gazing into these spaces, Gallery finds reverence and tranquility. Wyatt uses photography to examine a sense of spirituality and resiliency found within spaces of emptiness, destruction, and loss. For a moment, we may find quiet contemplation and transcendence in a context where Subtext becomes more powerful than the rush around us.

Gallery received his BFA in photography at the Tisch School of the Arts at New York University in 1997. Currently the executive director of For Freedoms, he is the recipient of numerous honors and awards such as the Fulbright Fellowship, PDN 30, and ICP's Infinity Award. His photographs have been exhibited throughout the world and are in major private and public collections including the Museum of Fine Arts in Houston, the George Eastman House, the New Orleans Museum of Art, Twitter, and American Express.
Subtext II: Meditations will remain on view through June 25th, 2017. Foley Gallery is open Wednesday through Saturday11 - 6pmSunday 12:30 - 6pm. To request images; please contact the gallery at 212.244. 9081 or
