Polly Barham @ Ikon Gallery

19 September 2018 - 18 November 2018

A major exhibition of new and recent work by Polly Apfelbaum, which features 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, recalling the vast empty spaces of the American landscape and the characters who anxiously anticipate extra-terrestrial visits. This is combined with surrealist René Magritte’s definition of a garden as “a space set between a landscape and a bunch of flowers”
