A constant innovator for more than four decades, Barbara Nessim was one of the first professional illustrators to master the computer as an artistic tool. This exhibition examines her sketchbooks, hand-drawn and computer-generated illustrations, paintings, collages, textiles, and fashion.
Barbara Nessim’s distinctive graphic style has graced the covers of numerous American magazines, including Time, Rolling Stone, Esquire and the New York Times Magazine since the 1960s. In the early 1980s Nessim was one of the first professional illustrators to master the computer as an artistic tool. Her work ranges from provocative drawings (some for men’s magazines) and paintings that represent her underlying feminist views (Gloria Steinem was once her roommate), to advertising campaigns for major corporations (Levi’s and Ralph Lauren were among her clients), and large-scale commissions for public buildings.
