"Evelyn age 12," 2012, oil on linen, 16 × 20 by Aliza Nisenbaum, via Artforum

Aliza Nisenbaum (BFA 2001, MFA 2005) opens up to Artforum about her process, her time at SAIC, her current show at the Minneapolis Institute of Art (MIA) and more. Much of Nisenbaum's work borrows from French Intimist painters and Mexican social realism to counter portraiture's history of maintaining social hierarchies. Check out the video here or read Artforum’s write up Nisenbaum’s MIA show opening here.
