Screening Room: ‘Call Her Applebroog’ by Beth B

Streaming all weekend, 4 – 6 February 2022

Call Her Applebroog
Directed by Beth B
1 hr 10 min

To celebrate Ida Applebroog’s forthcoming exhibition at Hauser & Wirth Somerset, we are thrilled to present an online screening of ‘Call Her Applebroog’ (2016) directed by filmmaker, and the artist’s daughter, Beth B. The film will be free to watch exclusively on from Friday – Sunday, 4 – 6 February 2022.

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.

‘The documentary reveals a woman as layered, wry and dark as the artwork that’s won her Guggenheim and MacArthur Foundation Fellowships, amid plenty of other recognition,’ says Julia Felsenthal in VOGUE. ‘Applebroog’s art is intimate and political, confessional and sometimes exhibitionist.’

Applebroog’s solo exhibition at Hauser & Wirth Somerset consists of highlights travelling from the artist’s largest survey to date at Museo Reina Sofía, Madrid, alongside important new works created over the past year. ‘Ida Applebroog. Right Up To Now 1969 – 2021’ speaks to Applebroog’s radical introspection as a woman and an artist, presenting life as it is and the repetitive patterns of our existence.

A physical screening will take place in Somerset at King’s Bruton on Friday 11 March 2022, 7 pm. Book your tickets here.

‘Call Her Applebroog’ is a Zeitgeist Films release; produced and directed by Beth B.
