Screening: Maggie Lee's “Mommy” with Maggie Lee, Chrissie Iles, and Jane Panetta

June 10, 2016

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 on May 21, 2016 was followed by a conversation with Maggie Lee, curator Chrissie Iles, and associate curator Jane Panetta, one of the organizers of the exhibition Mirror Cells (May 13–Aug 21, 2016), which includes Lee's work.
