New Acquisition to the Astrup Fearnley Collection

 

The Astrup Fearnley Collection has acquired a new work by the artist Nicole Eisenman, “Destiny Riding Her Bike,” 2020⁠.

Nicole Eisenman (b. 1965) is a key figure in contemporary American painting and sculpture, with characteristic works that shift between abstraction and the figurative depiction of social groups. On 5 February 2021, Astrup Fearnley will present the exhibition “Nicole Eisenman – Giant Without a Body,” an in-depth look at her artistic practice from 2006 to the present. This will be the artist’s most comprehensive solo presentation in Europe to date, and the work acquired for the collection was commissioned specifically for the exhibition. ⁠⠀
