Sir Nicholas Serota, who curated Hesse’s first European retrospective in 1979, was featured in the recent Eva Hesse Documentary film. Hesse was on one of the greatest American artists of the 20th-century. A pioneer, helping to establish the post-minimalist movement, her career was cut short at age 34, when she died of a brain tumor. In just a decade, Hesse challenged and changed the field with large scale, complex sculptures and installations that defy easy categorization. Details on screenings can be found here.
