637 E. Hyman Ave

Lisa Yuskavage was born in Philadelphia, in 1962, and lives and works in New York. Her approach to figurative painting challenges conventional understandings of the genre and combines art history, popular culture, and fantastical references. Her work has been the subject of solo exhibitions at the Institute of Contemporary Art, University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, Centre d’Art Contemporain, Geneva, Museo Tamayo Arte Contemporáneo, Mexico City, the Royal Hibernian Academy, Dublin, and the Rose Art Museum, Waltham, MA. Yuskavage is the recipient of the 2019 Aspen Award for Art.
