Screening: Mommy

Sat, May 21, 2016
7–8:30 pm

Floor Three, Susan and John Hess Family Theater

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 will be followed by a conversation with Maggie Lee, curator Chrissie Iles, and associate curator Jane Panetta, one of the organizers of Mirror Cells. This program is held in connection with the exhibition.

Tickets are required ($10 adults; $8 members, students, and seniors).

The Susan and John Hess Family Theater is equipped with an induction loop and infrared assistive listening system. Accessible seating is available.
