Windgate Artists in Residence Lecture: Mind the Heart! Maya Gelfman and Roie Avidan

Thursday, November 2nd, 2023, 10:00 AM in the Ruth Zuckerman Pavilion 

Mind the Heart! (est. 2009) is a worldwide art project by Israeli artists Maya Gelfman & Roie Avidan. In the past decade, the project has reached more than 100 cities across 5 continents. The project works at the intersection of art and social awareness. It engages the public domain with the aim of getting both the artists and the audiences to be fully present, to ‘be here now’. This is achieved through tangible street art but expands across mediums and disciplines, to temporary installations in the wild, performances, poetry and public actions.

Virtual Lecture by Polly Apfelbaum

  • Thursday, November 9 at 7:00pm via Zoom

    ZMA exhibiting artist Polly Apfelbaum will speak about her artistic practice and the large-scale installations of ceramics, prints, and textiles on view in NIRVANA. Best known for combining a variety of media with vibrant saturated colors and patterns to obscure the lines between painting, installation, sculpture, and everyday objects, Apfelbaum actively interrogates the boundaries between art, craft, and design. Polly Apfelbaum graduated from the Tyler School of Art, Elkins Park, Pennsylvania. She has exhibited consistently since her first solo show 1986.  Her work has been recognized with a Pew Center for Arts Grant, a Creative Capital Award, and the 2012 Rome Prize at the American Academy.  She has also received a Joan Mitchell Grant, The Diebenkorn Fellowship, a Pollock-Krasner Foundation Grant, an Anonymous Was a Woman Grant, and a Guggenheim Fellowship.
