BEYOND THE MATTER – Impressions of Eva Hesse, is an exhibition dedicated to the life and work of the late great artist Eva Hesse. Hesse was a German-born American sculptor known for her pioneering work in materials such as latex, fibreglass, and plastics. She is one of the artists who ushered in the postminimal art movement in the 1960s. The exhibition consists of 20 artists who are inspired by Hesse in their own practise. Whether through her use of materials and forms or simply inspired by the fascinating life she lived each artist has been asked to make work that they feel references Hesse in some way. Tragically she died at the young age of 34. This exhibition is a celebration and a tribute to a wonderful artist that is still inspiring others more than 50 years after her death.
