As part of their Visual Voices Lecture Series, the Bradley University Department of Art will present a screening of the documentary film “Eva Hesse” by Marcie Begleiter on Thursday, September 7 from 5-7 p.m. at the Horowitz Auditorium, located in the Caterpillar Global Communications Center on the campus of Bradley University. The screening is free and open to the public.

Eva Hesse (1936-1970) was one of America’s foremost postwar artists. She is well known for her pioneering use of abstract mediums, such as latex, fiberglass, and plastics. She is heavily associated with the postmodern and postminimal art movement and is regarded as one of the most influential artists of the 1960’s. “Eva Hesse” is the first feature-length film of her life and work. The film includes excerpts from the artist’s many journals, her correspondence with fellow artist, close friend and mentor Sol LeWitt, and contemporary as well as archival interviews with other fellow artists.
