Join ArtTable for our artist breakfast—intimate monthly breakfasts featuring leading artists in discussion with curators, academics, or critics. This month features artist Polly Apfelbaum. 

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, fine art history, and popular culture.
Active since the mid-1980s, Apfelbaum’s practice is notable for her use of found materials associated with craft traditions to create sculptural objects and sprawling, floor-based installations. She has referenced the aesthetics and principles of the Italian Arte Povera movement, French Supports/Surface movement, and First-Wave Feminist art, utilizing accumulation and dispersal as her preferred tools for installations.

Thanky you to Polly Apfelbaum for participating in this program.
