Join the National Museum of Women in the Arts (NMWA) for a conversation about Aggie, a new feature-length documentary about art collector and philanthropist Agnes “Aggie” Gund. Gund made headlines in 2017 for selling her prized Roy Lichtenstein work Masterpiece (1962) in order to establish the Art for Justice Fund, an organization that seeks to disrupt mass incarceration through art and advocacy. Catherine Gund, the film’s director and Aggie’s daughter, joins artist Teresita Fernández in conversation about Aggie’s life, her impact on the world and the larger relationship between art, race and justice.
The film will be available for viewing October 11–18, so NMWA audiences can watch the film before the conversation.
