Eva Hesse: Studiowork Exhibition Opens, Lecture by co-curator Briony Fer
Eva Hesse: Studiowork - Exhibition Opens
January 26–April 10
Like other artists of the 1960s, sculptor Eva Hesse (1936-1970) pushed the conceptual and technical limits of art. Organized by the Fruitmarket Gallery in Edinburgh, this exhibition presents rarely seen small-scale works, many from BAM/PFA’s own collection, that illuminate Hesse’s studio practice and capture moments of experimentation.
Lecture: Briony Fer (6:30 p.m.)
Museum Theater - Admission free
Exhibition co-curator Briony Fer is Professor of History of Art at University College London and has published extensively on twentieth-century and contemporary art. She is the author of The Infinite Line: Re-making Art After Modernism and On Abstract Art. In this illustrated lecture she will address Eva Hesse’s studioworks in relation to the artist’s overall body of work and contemporary sculpture.
The exhibition gallery will be open for viewing before the lecture, with no admission charge after 5 p.m.
