Support Hyperallergic’s independent arts journalism.
Starting off as an abstract expressionist before going on to become a pioneer in photorealism, Audrey Flack has had a highly varied artistic career over her 88 years. The upcoming documentary Queen of Hearts: Audrey Flack, directed by Deborah Shaffer (winner of the Oscar for Best Documentary Short for 1985’s Witness to War) and co-directed by Rachel Reichman, traces this path and follows the artist as she looks in new directions. For the first time, Flack also opens up about many aspects of her personal life, particularly her relationship with her autistic child. Hyperallergic has the exclusive debut of the film’s trailer. Flack’s bluntness and wry humor is on full display, both about her work and her experiences under the patriarchal confines of the art world.
Queen of Hearts: Audrey Flack opens in virtual cinemas November 13.
