Aliza Nisenbaum, who was born in Mexico City, has exhibited her kinetic, vivid portraits of undocumented immigrants in New York throughout the country. Her process, which involves engaging deeply with her subjects to capture their lively characteristics and intimate views of the world, celebrates the underrepresented with attention and intention. This exhibition, however, is her first solo museum show. It includes three new works commissioned by the museum. During her summer residency, the artist invited local Latino and Somali residents in the Whittier and Wedge neighborhoods, as well as Mia’s security guards, to sit for three large-scale portraits.
