EVERYBODY KNOWS... Elizabeth Murray
Through interviews with her family, friends, other artists and art critics, this hour-long documentary celebrates the life and work of American painter Elizabeth Murray (1940-2007).
Despite being one of only five women to be honored with a MoMA retrospective and included in the 2007 Venice Biennale as well as several Whitney Biennials, her work has yet to be incorporated into the vernacular of the contemporary art world. Many admit that this is because of the male-dominated art scene, and insist that she is a highly influential "artist's artist."
This film includes powerful moments showing Elizabeth at work, her two memorial services as well as intimate interviews with MoMA President Emeritus Agnes Gund, Director of Pace Wildenstein Arnold Glimcher as well as artist luminaries such as Chuck Close and Joel Shapiro.
