Studio Arts Program Presents

Tuesday, April 2, 2019
Polly Apfelbaum
Fisher Studio Arts Building, Seminar Room
5:00 pm – 6:00 pm
Polly Apfelbaum’s(b.1955) artistic practice is distinguished by a hybridized aesthetic that fuses traditions of painting, craft, and installation. Deploying a wide variety of media—including fabric, paint, dyes, wallpaper, plasticine, and ceramics—her work has dissolved spatial, plastic, and temporal boundaries. She is best known for expansive polychromatic installations, which coalesce the radical and the beautiful, simultaneously domestic and irreverent. Her sensibility is informed by an encyclopedic knowledge of the applied arts, art history, and popular culture.  The prolific artist has mounted nearly 60 solo exhibitions worldwide and has participated in hundreds of group exhibitions. She has received awards and grants from organizations including Anonymous Was a Woman, the Pollock-Krasner Foundation, and the Joan Mitchell Foundation.
