Aliza Nisenbaum @ Tate Liverpool
15 December 2020 - 5 September 2021
Aliza Nisenbaum is best known for her bright, large-scale portraits of community groups. Inspired by the dedication of Liverpool’s key workers, the artist created a series of new paintings of NHS staff from Merseyside who worked tirelessly for their community during the pandemic.
The exhibition captures the stories of frontline NHS workers and highlights the impact that Covid-19 has had on their jobs and home lives. Sitters include a professor of Outbreak Medicine, a respiratory doctor who became a father during the first wave, and a student nurse who comes from a family of nurses who all chose to return to frontline work.
