June 4, 2016: Mommy Conversation with Maggie Lee and Leslie Jamison 

Maggie Lee’s 2015 film Mommy explores the sudden death of the artist’s mother in 2012. Returning to the suburban New Jersey home where she grew up, Lee addresses the trauma of this loss and her own coming of age using layers of photographs, drawings, cellphone footage and animation.

This special screening was followed by a conversation between Maggie Lee and the novelist and essayist Leslie Jamison, author of The New York Times bestseller The Empathy Exams (2014) and Assistant Professor at the Columbia University School of the Arts. This program is held in connection with the exhibition Mirror Cells.
