Eva Hesse by Marcie Begleiter (Germany/USA/UK, 2016, 105 min.).

In the 1960’s, the world of contemporary sculpture was dominated by the clean, calculated aesthetic of male artists like Dan Flavin, Donald Judd and Sol Lewitt. Eva Hesse disrupted this minimalist landscape by creating messy, organic pieces made from voluptuous latex and tangles of rope. Her rapid rise to fame and tragic death at age 34 are chronicled in this soulful documentary with a wealth of newly discovered archival imagery, appearances by art world icons, and the testimony of Hesse’s family and friends.

Following the screening on September 8th, join us for a Q&A with director Marcie Begleiter in person!
