CinemArt Screening: Call Her Applebroog

A poignant and intimate portrait of artist Ida Applebroog, 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. The film is directed by her filmmaker daughter Beth B who gains a deeper understanding of her mother as a human being while highlighting the possibilities and limitations of art as a route to self-knowledge. CinemArt is a film series presented by Hauser & Wirth in collaboration with the Cinéma Rex in Pontresina. A special programme open to the public will offer unique insights into the lives and work of significant international contemporary and modern artists, including a selection connected to Hauser & Wirth’s roster. This cinematic programme is centred around Hauser & Wirth St. Moritz’s current exhibition ‘Material Actions’ and will primarily focus on female artists from the exhibition, such as Ida Applebroog and Jenny Holzer. Other featured artists and well-known personalities from the art world include Eva Hesse and Peggy Guggenheim.
