Screening: Animated Films of Maria Lassnig

  • Wed 30 November 2016
  • 4 pm

Complementing the current exhibition on view, ‘Maria Lassnig. A Painting Survey, 1950 – 2007,’ Sarah Lehrer-Graiwer will introduce a program presenting the artist’s complete film works, spanning from 1971 to 1992. Paralleling her celebrated and prolific painting practice, Maria Lassnig (1919 – 2014) produced a smaller group of animated and live action short films. Motion pictures enabled her to expand and narrativize the ‘body awareness’ project and rigorous subjectivity that defined her paintings for over half a century.
