Everybody Knows … Elizabeth Murray

Location: Floor Three, Susan and John Hess Family Theater

Everybody Knows … Elizabeth Murray (2016) is an intimate portrait of the groundbreaking artist Elizabeth Murray. This film explores the relationship between Murray’s family life and career, and reconsiders her place in contemporary art practice. Verité footage, home videos and excerpts from her journals, voiced by actress Meryl Streep, tell of Murray’s internal struggles and incredible ambition while exclusive interviews with art world luminaries provide the historical backdrop for the New York art scene.

A conversation between Kristi Zea, the film’s director and producer, and poet and activist Bob Holman, Murray’s husband, will follow the 4:30 and 7:30 pm screenings.
