Judy Pfaff is bringing her debut exhibition to Messums Wiltshire in the Autumn. Join us for an introductory talk from this highly respected UK born American artist.
Judy Pfaff is a pioneer of installation art in the 1970s and creates exuberant, sprawling sculptures and installations that weave landscape, architecture and colour drawing on many modern traditions, Futurism, Constructivism, Cubism, Surrealism and Abstract Expressionism. Born in the UK she works in New York she responds to the environment in which she is working – in the case of Messums Wiltshire a 13th Century architecture in which she will use a variety of 21st century materials including plastics, fibreglass and steel to make a sixty foot long sculpture.
Judy is a professor of art at Bard College and has mounted more than 100 solo exhibitions and her work appears in the collections of the Museum of Modern Art, New York, and the Whitney Museum of American Art. She has held numerous visiting faculty appointments at such institutions as the California Institute of Arts, Yale University, the Rhode Island School of Design, Oberlin College, and Princeton University. Pfaff was a member of the graduate faculty at the School of Visual Arts, New York (1986–1991), and was a professor of visual arts at Columbia University (1992–1994).
