Contemporary Art Museum St. Louis says
Following the opening of spring exhibitions on Friday, January 15, preeminent New York-based artist Lisa Yuskavage will be joined by Chief Curator Jeffrey Uslip for a conversation about her practice as a figurative painter.

Yuskavage's exhibition at CAM, The Brood, presents twenty-five years of the artist’s work, espousing her bold vision for contemporary figurative painting. The Brood is Yuskavage’s first solo museum exhibition in the United States in over fifteen years, comprising key paintings that chart her emergence in the early 1990s to the present. Merging the grand tradition of portraiture with the expansive vocabulary of female transgression and empowerment, Yuskavage’s sensuous palette and confrontational subject matter provoke the imagination and create a sometimes polarizing space: the artist presents the female body as a site of defiance and decadence.
