Panel Discussion: Eva Hesse 1965
Saturday, March 16, 2013
Iris and B. Gerald Cantor Auditorium, 3rd Floor
Taking inspiration from the exhibition Eva Hesse 1965, currently on view at Hauser & Wirth, in London, this panel reexamines Hesse's legacy by focusing on her artistic experimentation during 1965, a pivotal period when she rethought her approach to color, materials, and two-dimensional work, and formed the foundation for her sculptural practice. Elisabeth Sussman, Sondra Gilman Curator of Photography at the Whitney Museum of American Art, moderates a conversation among writer William S. Wilson and contributors to the exhibition catalogue Todd Alden, Susan Fisher Sterling, and Kirsten Swenson. This program is presented by the Elizabeth A. Sackler Center for Feminist Art.
