Eva Hesse: Free-form
Catharina Manchanda, Jon and Mary Shirley Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art
NOTE: Due to a scheduling conflict this lecture, which was originally scheduled for Wednesday, February 22, has now been moved to Monday, February 27.
An innovator and experimenter, Eva Hesse freed herself from the demands placed on painting and sculpture in the 1960s. Although her work was ostensibly abstract, the body was always implied in material and form. With this latent yet persistent address to bodily form, she boldly charted a new course and became an inspiration for future generations of artists.
Conversations with Curators offers members the chance to hear from our outstanding curators as they share rich stories about the art at SAM.
Lectures are held Wednesday evenings at the Seattle Art Museum. Doors open at 6 pm for Happy Hour in the South Hall where you can enjoy complimentary wine and light snacks. Curator talks begin at 7 pm in Plestcheeff Auditorium.
