Artist Eva Hesse, a 34 year-old German-born American, had a swiftly rising career that was tragically cut short when she died in May 1970. In this film, artists speak about Eva's work, her life and the sixties. Sir Nicholas Serota, Director of the Tate Museums, and Whitney curator Elisabeth Sussman have also added their views on Hesse’s work and legacy in the documentary. With dozens of new interviews, footage of Hesse’s artwork and newly discovered archival imagery, "Eva Hesse" not only traces the artist's path but also engages in an investigation into the creative community of 1960’s New York and Germany.

Tickets are $10. The film is 108 minutes long. Southampton Arts Center is located at 25 Jobs Lane, Southampton, NY 11968.
