Polly Apfelbaum: Happiness RunsPolly Apfelbaum: Happiness Runs

Published by Verlag für moderne Kunst.
Edited with text by Stella Rollig. Text by Patricia Grzonka, Johanna Hofer, Kate McNamara, Bob Nickas.

Happiness Runs presents the colorful geometric paintings, sculptures and woven floor pieces of the New York–based artist Polly Apfelbaum (born 1955), whose work is stylistically influenced by movements such as pop art and Bauhaus, as well as craft culture, feminism and comic books. As Bob Nickas writes in an essay included in the publication, "The viewer, then, is also Apfelbaum's subject, meant to interact with her work and be acted upon. After thirty years' time, she continues to find new ways of grounding the viewer and orchestrating the conditions through which we may immerse ourselves in art."
This volume, accompanying an exhibition in Vienna, includes extensive photographs detailing some of Apfelbaum's recent major works, such as Deep Purple, Red Shoes, Face (Geometry) (Naked) Eyes and The Potential of Women. In addition, installation views illustrate the exhibition at Vienna's beautiful modernist space, Belvedere 21.

Polly Apfelbaum: Deep Purple, Red ShoesPolly Apfelbaum: Deep Purple, Red Shoes

Published by MER. Paper Kunsthalle.

New York–based Polly Apfelbaum’s (born 1955) oeuvre, a mixture of two- and three-dimensional art, is situated at the intersection of painting, sculpture and installation, and often introduces various techniques considered "female"—such as weaving—into the realm of contemporary art. In her new artist’s book, Deep Purple, Red Shoes, published on the occasion of her eponymous exhibition at Be-Part in Waregem, Belgium, Apfelbaum combines a modern-day discourse with the tradition of handwoven carpets from a village in Oaxaca, Mexico, where the entire community is involved in carpet making, designing carpets that practically covered her exhibition space. The volume begins with a few enigmatic cut-out pages in bright red, orange and purple, representing the shapes of the Be-Part rugs. These are followed by installation views in black and white, while a series of details in full color unveils the installation bit by bit.

Artwork by Polly Apfelbaum. Contributions by Ingrid Schaffner. Text by Tim Griffin, Irving Sandler, Claudia Gould.

Polly Apfelbaum creates what she calls “fallen paintings,” hybrid works of rare beauty that exist in a contentious, ambivalent space between painting, sculpture and installation. These works transform the colors of mass culture into wild oscillating spectra bordering on the organic. This volume accompanies the first large museum survey of her work, and features new and recent installations as well as a range of work from the past 15 years.
