Synapse Lecture: Judy Pfaff
A pioneer in mixed media installation, Judy Pfaff explores the relationships between physical, emotional, and intellectual worlds. Between material and space, Pfaff creates work that is evocative of the invisible workings of the body, the energy of the cosmos, and the change happening in our everyday. Synthetic and natural systems intertwine forming complex and conflicting perspectives.
Pfaff is the recipient of numerous awards including the Academy Member Fellowship, American Academy of Arts & Sciences (2013); Anonymous Was A Woman Award (2013); MacArthur Fellowship (2004); Guggenheim Fellowship (1983); National Endowment for the Arts grants (1979, 1986). Pfaff’s work is in numerous collections including the Museum of Modern Art, Whitney Museum of American Art, Brooklyn Museum of Art and the Detroit Institute of Arts.
