Everybody Knows…Elizabeth Murray

Director: Kristi Zea

Film Summary

Art + Artists | 1:13 | 2016 | Italy/USA | | View Website

Elizabeth Murray was a true vanguard in the art world: a single mother who refused to sacrifice family for her thriving career, a creator whose colorful, playful paintings detonated the space between high and low art, becoming a pop art luminary and one of the few female artists given a career retrospective at the MoMA. Murray never stopped creating, even as she battled cancer, and as the verite footage, interviews with art world luminaries, and journal entries narrated by Meryl Streep all attest to, we're richer for it.
