Eva Hesse Film Screening at MFAH

The talented artist Eva Hesse (1936–1970) tragically died of a brain tumor at age 34. Her pioneering sculptures using latex, fiberglass, and plastics helped establish the post-minimalist movement. This new documentary traces her life through journals, her correspondence with mentor Sol LeWitt, and interviews with family members and fellow artists. A celebration of her achievements, the film also addresses the challenges faced by women artists in the years preceding the feminist movement.

Directed by Marcie Begleiter.
