EXCLUSIVE: Artist Ida Applebroog leads a tour of her personal collection of thrift store and auction finds, in her home and studio in upstate New York.

Ida Applebroog propels her paintings and drawings into the realm of installation by arranging and stacking canvases in space, exploding the frame-by-frame logic of comic-book and film narrative into three-dimensional environments. Strong themes in her work include gender and sexual identity, power struggles, and the pernicious role of mass media in desensitizing the public to violence.

Ida Applebroog is featured in the Season 3 (2005) episode Power of the Art:21—Art in the Twenty-First Century television series on PBS.
