Heidi Pollard: Call and Response
 
 
 
 

UNM Art Museum has partnered with Albuquerque-based artist Heidi Pollard for an engaging project that explores the lasting influence of Abstract Expressionist artist Adolph Gottlieb on contemporary art. In direct response to the exhibition A Painter’s Hand: The Monotypes of Adolph Gottlieb, Heidi Pollard has created a new body of work that examines how his legacy continues to impact artists today. Pollard’s installation will incorporate original monotypes, made in collaboration with Brooke Steiger of UNM Printmaking, as well as hand-cut and painted objects that reference the visual language and energy of Gottlieb’s work on view at the Museum. Heidi Pollard: Call and Response is the first in a series of new initiatives, through which the Museum strives to make meaningful connections between our collection, exhibitions and contemporary art practice.  Heidi Pollard: Call and Response will be on view at the UNM Art Museum from March 23 - April 29, 2017.

Heidi Pollard is a painter and sculptor, born in Detroit, Michigan, and currently based in Albuquerque, New Mexico. She has exhibited her work widely throughout the US and has received awards from the Adolph and Esther Gottlieb Foundation, the Joan Mitchell Foundation, the Pollock-Krasner Foundation and the New Jersey Council on the Arts.
