Eva Hesse 1965: Panel discussion at the Brooklyn Museum, March 15, 2013

Taking inspiration from the 2013 Hauser & Wirth London exhibition Eva Hesse 1965, this panel reexamines Hesse’s legacy by focusing on her artistic experimentation during 1965, a pivotal period when she rethought her approach to color, materials, and two-dimensional work, and formed the foundation for her sculptural practice. Elisabeth Sussman, Sondra Gilman Curator of Photography at the Whitney Museum of American Art, moderates a conversation among writer William S. Wilson and contributors to the exhibition catalogue Todd Alden, Susan Fisher Sterling, and Kirsten Swenson. Introduction by Elizabeth Sackler.
