About EVE HESSE: 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. Dying of a brain tumor at age 34, she had a mere decade-long career that, despite its brevity, is dense with complex, intriguing works that defy easy categorization. This documentary features her correspondence with close friend and mentor Sol LeWitt, along with interviews with artists Richard Serra, Robert Mangold, and Dan Graham, who recall her passionate, ambitious, tenacious personality. The documentary also captures the psychic struggles of an artist who, in the downtown New York art scene of the 1960s, was one of the few women to make work that was taken seriously in a field dominated by male pop artists.
