“Excellence has no sex.” - Eva Hesse
This documentary explores sculptor Eva Hesse’s lively work and the challenges she faced as one of the few women artists to be taken seriously in a field dominated by men in the 1960s downtown New York art scene.
"Eva Hesse’s life story exudes drama. From escaping Nazi Germany at age two aboard one of the last Kindertransport trains bound for the Netherlands, to her emphatic break with the dominant mode of art making of the 1960s — Minimalism, to her death from a brain tumor at 34, and to her posthumous celebration as one of the most important artists of the second half of the 20th century, her biography has all the requisite elements of a rousing documentary or tearjerking biopic." - Benjamin Sutton, Hyperallergic
