‘Judy Pfaff: Come What May’
A solo exhibition by University of Wyoming Eminent Artist in Residence Judy Pfaff will opens this weekend.
“Judy Pfaff: Come What May” features large mixed media sculpture and two-dimensional works.
Considered a pioneer of installation art in the 1970s, Pfaff is known for her site-specific installations that are sprawling environments that combine natural motifs, architecture and color, said Rachel Miller, UW Art Museum assistant curator, in a release.
Pfaff has received numerous grants and fellowships, including the MacArthur Fellowship (2004), Guggenheim Fellowship (1983) and National Endowment for the Arts grants (1979, 1986). She has exhibited in solo exhibitions and group shows in major galleries and museums in the United States and abroad.
Her work is in the permanent collections of the Museum of Modern Art, Whitney Museum of American Art, Brooklyn Museum of Art and Detroit Institute of Arts. She is a professor and department chair at Bard College, New York.
