About this course:
Haven’t seen any good documentaries lately? Ever wish the filmmaker was there to answer questions? Want a knowledgeable moderator? Try our OLLI DocuTalk Series hosted by our own Audrey Stein. This spring, she screens Eva Hesse with director Marcie Begleiter with us to participate in the Q&A. Eva Hesse (1936-1970) is one of America’s foremost postwar artists. Her pioneering sculptures, using latex, fiberglass, and plastics, helped establish the post-minimalist movement. Eva Hesse, the first feature-length appreciation of her life and work, makes superb use of the artist’s voluminous journals, her correspondence with close friend and mentor Sol LeWitt, and contemporary as well as archival interviews with fellow artists (among them, Richard Serra, Robert Mangold, Dan Graham) who recall her passionate, ambitious, tenacious personality.
