“Nicole Eisenman shows me a party scene entitled ANOTHER GREEN WORLD. I proudly yell ‘Eno!’ and she confirms that that’s the record she was listening to for days. The title also comes from the critic Northrop Frye, who contended that, in Shakespeare’s work, the characters were always going into the woods to find another mode of knowing or being—the green place that, in Eisenman’s sentiment, is where the poet or artist’s always gotta go.” — Eileen Myles*
In its current SELECTIONS FROM THE PERMANENT COLLECTION show, MOCA Grand Avenue is exhibiting Eisenman’s ANOTHER GREEN WORLD (2015) in its south galleries. Don’t miss it.
(Eisenman will also be showing work at the decennial Skulptur Projekte Münster, June 10 through October 1, 2017.)
