This event is present by Estate of Elizabeth Murray in collaboration with CANADA.
Throughout her four-decade career Elizabeth Murray (1940-2007) redefined the world of painting by producing a singularly innovative body of work. Warping, twisting, and knotting her constructed canvases, she transformed painting's conventions with her vivid colors, boldly inventive forms, and shaped, constructed, multi-paneled canvases. Murray’s work often featured domestic objects—coffee cups, glasses, spoons, chairs, tables, and shoes—by which the artist subverts the viewer's notion of the familiar. Stoically, she plowed through the male-dominated art world to make way for her art and by doing so, cleared a way for a generation of women artists.
