The documentary Eva Hesse, by Marcie Begleiter (2016), investigates the life and artistic practice of one of the most influential and experimental artists of the last half-century. Emerging from the male-dominated artistic milieu of 1960s minimalism, Hesse created work that pushed new boundaries as she deliberately chose complicated and often impermanent materials for her sculptures.

Focusing on postwar American art and film, this series examines the formation of national identity. Each screening pairs a work from the museums’ modern and contemporary art collection with a film that speaks to its concerns. As in any dialogue, the conversation goes both ways: as the chosen artworks reveal hidden complexities in apparently simple films, the selected films use narrative to tease out and make apparent the aesthetic and social ambitions of art.
