Heinecken Explains Heinecken

Hammer Museum

10899 Wilshire Blvd, CA 90024, CA 0

7:30pm

Using one of Robert Heinecken’s lectures from 1988 as a framework, this film interweaves the artist’s voice with images of his work, creating a portrait of the legendary artist and teacher in his own words. This documentary of a pioneer in the postwar L.A. art scene perfectly captures Heinecken’s political and aesthetic concerns, as well as his understated humor. (2011, Dir. P. Savenick, 45 min.)
