“Live Forever: Elizabeth Peyton” at the New Museum is the first survey of American artist Elizabeth Peyton’s work in an American institution. The retrospective includes more than 100 works made over the past fifteen years. Elizabeth Peyton portraits friends, family, and personal heroes. The exhibition presents works from the earliest portraits of musicians like Kurt Cobain, Liam Gallagher, and Jarvis Cocker to more recent paintings featuring friends and figures from the worlds of art, fashion, cinema, and politics like Rirkrit Tiravanija, Matthew Barney, and Marc Jacobs.
“Live Forever: Elizabeth Peyton” premieres at the New Museum and will then travel to the Walker Art Center, the Whitechapel Art Gallery, and the Bonnefantenmuseum.
