BSL Tour – Nicole Eisenman: What Happened

Join the Whitechapel Gallery for a British Sign Language Tour of ‘Nicole Eisenman: What Happened’, led by Chisato Minamimura.

This exhibition brings together over 100 works from across the artist’s three-decade career – many of which have not previously been shown in the UK.  Encompassing large-scale, monumental paintings alongside sculptures, monoprints, animation and drawings, the exhibition showcases the extraordinary range and formal inventiveness that characterises her practice.

Eisenman’s work explores some of the most prescient socio-political issues of the day.  These encompass gender, identity and sexual politics, recent civic and governmental turmoil in the United States, protest and activism, and the impact of technology on personal relationships and romantic lives.

To book a free place, please email or call +44 (0)20 7522 7888

Free parking for Blue Badge holders is available at the top of Osborn Street in the pay and display booths for an unlimited period. Spaces are available on a first come, first served basis. Step free access to all gallery spaces is available, unless stated otherwise on our website.
