Ida APPLEBROOG (b. 1929)

A student of the Art Institute of Chicago, American artist Ida Applebroog rose to fame with her 1981 solo exhibition Silent Stagings at the Ronald Feldmann Gallery, NYC.

 

Applebroog questions gender identity making works featuring heavily outlined simple human forms, anonymous in both their lack of facial features and the context within which they exist.

 

Solo exhibitions include Corcoran Gallery, Washington, D.C. (1998) and her inclusion in numerous group exhibitions including the New Museum, NYC, recent show NYC 1993: Experimental Jet Set Trash and No Star (2012).  Her work is in the collections of the Whitney Museum of American Art, NYC; MoMA, NYC; and the Friedrich Christian Flick Collection, Berlin.
