An intimate portrait of the groundbreaking artist Elizabeth Murray, only the fifth women to have a career retrospective at MoMA. The film explores the relationship between Murray’s family life and her career, while reconsidering her place in contemporary art history. Verité footage, home videos and excerpts from her journals (voiced by Meryl Streep) reveal the artrist’s fierce ambition and internal conflicts. From struggling single mother to thriving artist who moved through her work without hesitation, Elizabeth Murray was a maverick who defied convention. Wednesday, January 25 – 8:00 PM at Nyack Center. With Chuck Close, JoAnne Akalaitis, narrated by Meryl Streep, 2016, USA, 60 minutes.
