    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.

ELIZABETH DILLER is a founding principal of DILLER SCOFIDIO + RENFRO (DS+R), an interdisciplinary design studio that integrates architecture, the visual arts, and the performing arts.

They are fellows of the Royal Institute of British Architects and have been inducted into the American Academy of Arts and Sciences. Ms. Diller was recently selected as an Aspen Institute Harman-Eisner Artist in Residence and awarded the Barnard Medal of Distinction. In 2003, the Whitney Museum of American Art held a retrospective of the studio’s work, recognizing DS+R’s unorthodox practice. Ms. Diller is a Professor of Architecture at Princeton University.
