Polly Apfelbaum receives 2019 Creative Capital Award

Posted 16 January 2019

Congratulations to Polly Apfelbaum who has been selected as a recipient of the 2019 Creative Capital Awards. She will receive project funding for a major new work in addition to career development support. Her work in progress, This is not a rug/A Sun Bonnet Women, is an installation containing hand-woven carpets, ceramics, drawings, wallpaper and/or immersive colour. The key visual motif comes from a painting of a faceless woman in a symbolic Pennsylvania Dutch style, relating it to contemporary ideas surrounding the portrayal of women.
