Polly Apfelbaum: Waiting for the UFOs

Wednesday 19 September 2018Sunday 18 November 2018

Waiting for the UFOs (a space set between a landscape and a bunch of flowers) is a major exhibition of new and recent work by internationally renowned New York-based artist Polly Apfelbaum. Featuring large-scale colourful installations of textiles, ceramics and drawings, Apfelbaum's artistic practice is framed within wider sociological and political contexts, and the legacy of post-war American art. The exhibition title comes from the 1970s song Waiting for the UFOs by British singer-songwriter Graham Parker and René Magritte's definition of a garden as 'a space set between a landscape and a bunch of flowers'.
