Tate Liverpool commissions new Aliza Nisenbaum work
Tate Liverpool is set to unveil a new commission by Mexican artist Aliza Nisenbaum this winter.
The New York-based artist is best known for her paintings that often focus on members of local communities, and her work is Influenced by the Mexican mural movement – including artists like Diego Rivera - and its depiction of social history.
Nisenbaum was born in Mexico City in 1977 and studied at the School of Art Institute in Chicago.
She has previously shown work in Glasgow, and last year she created an Art of the Underground public commission in London (above) which was showcased at Brixton tube station.
For her Tate Liverpool commission, she is expected to spend time living in the city, during which she will make her new work, capturing members of the community in a large-scale portrait.
Aliza Nisenbaum’s new work will be on show at Tate Liverpool from December 15 to June 27 2021.
