On 22 April we will be joined by Beth B whose intimate film portrait of her nonogenarian mother’s art practice we will be exclusively screening.
This deeply personal portrait of acclaimed New York–based artist Ida Applebroog was shot with mischievous reverence by her filmmaker daughter, Beth B.
Born in the Bronx to Orthodox Jewish émigrés from Poland, Applebroog looks back at how she expressed herself through decades of drawings and paintings, as well as her private journals. With her daughter’s encouragement, she investigates the stranger that is her former self, a woman who found psychological and sexual liberation through art. As Beth B finds a deeper understanding of her mother as a human being, Applebroog shares a newfound appreciation for her own provocative work.
Beth B will be in conversation with Dr Zoë Mendelson, who is an artist and writer. Her interests include drawing in the expanded field, psychologies of accumulation and histories of wellness.
This interview with director, Beth B took place at Camberwell/Wimbledon Colleges of Art on 22 April 2021. She discussed her film, 'Call Her Appelbroog' with Zoë Mendelson and students.
