Eva Hesse

Hesse stands in for postponed Judd exhibition at Tate

The show will open at Tate Modern later this month


A smaller version of the Eva Hesse show recently seen at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art opens this month at Tate Modern (13 November-9 March 2003). The transfer of the show to London has been negotiated at great speed following the postponement of the Donald Judd show originally slated to open last month, but held back to 2004 because of changes in the exhibition programme at the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam, which is co-curating the show. The great delicacy of the pieces created by the late Hesse (who died in 1970 at age 34 from brain cancer) often with unstable materials means that many of them are too fragile to travel.
