The exhibition the Museo Reina Sofía devotes to Ida Applebroog (New York, 1929) is the largest and most exhaustive retrospective of her work to date. The selection of pieces, spanning more than five decades, places the stress on the interests and concerns that were constants across her life, such as violence, power, gender politics and female sexuality. Taking as its point of departure the broad set of ink, watercolour and pencil drawings she made during her admission to Mercy Hospital San Diego in 1969, the show surveys her artistic evolution, from her early sculptures to the vignettes that appeared in her artist’s books.
