Elizabeth Murray’s zany, colorful, fractured canvases feature paenes to domesticity as they burst with the vivaciousness the artist herself exhibited even in the final days of her life. Murray’s journals are read by Meryl Streep, and the film highlights her struggle to balance personal and family ambition with artistic drive in a male-dominated art world. Maira Kalman is one of our great visual storytellers. This short film follows Kalman as she curates her exhibition “Selects” at the Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum. With humor, insight and honesty she has chosen objects that chronicle memories, dreams and reflections.
Total run time: 78 min.
