Hauser & Wirth is proud to present an exhibition of major works by the American artist Ida Applebroog. Describing herself as a ‘generic artist’, Applebroog’s subject is a sustained enquiry into the polemics of human relations. She appropriates mainstream media in innovative ways and transforms her canvases into structural elements, effectively questioning the viewer’s active involvement in her works.
