    New York-based artist Polly Apfelbaum’s work has situated itself as a hybrid of painting, sculpture, and installation over a career spanning 30 plus years. Exploring the intricacies of color, Apfelbaum weaves her way, both literally and conceptually, through ideas of Minimalism, Pop aesthetics, and Color Field painting to blur the lines between two and three dimensional art making.

  • Artist Polly Apfelbaum in conversation with Connie Butler, within Apfelbaum's exhibition Face (Geometry) (Naked) Eyes.

Big City Forum: Creative Action #2

Yuval Sharon – Artistic Director, The Industry
Danielle Agami – Artistic Director, Ate9 Dance Company
Victoria Looseleaf – L.A. TImes arts journalist, contributing reporter at KUSC

In conjunction with Otis’ Creative Action program, Big City Forum presents a series of four discussions featuring individuals who reinvent social space and redefine how we engage with each other. This panel addresses the collaborative process between an opera director and a dance choreographer/director in relation to their recent trans-disciplinary staging of Italo Calvino’s “Invisible Cities” at L.A.’s Union Station and the current performance installation of Terry Riley's In C at the Hammer Museum. Organized by alumnus Leonardo Bravo.
