Film Screening: ‘Call Her Applebroog’

Join a free screen­ing of Call Her Apple­broog’ (2016) direct­ed by film­mak­er, and the artist’s daugh­ter, Beth B.

To celebrate Ida Applebroog’s solo exhibition ‘Right Up To Now 1969 – 2021’, we are thrilled to present a screening of ‘Call Her Applebroog’ (2016) directed by filmmaker, and the artist’s daughter, Beth B.

This deeply personal portrait of acclaimed New York–based artist Ida Applebroog was shot with mischievous reverence by 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.

Welcome drink at 7 pm, with the screening starting promptly at 7.20 pm and finishing by 8.30 pm.

Please note, the screening is not taking place at the gallery and instead is a short walk away at King’s Bruton.
