Judy Pfaff is known for working in large scale, creating exuberant site-specific installations that incorporate diverse materials like wire, string, lights, plastic tubing, sheets of metal, and fabric. In the 1970s, when other artists were creating serial Minimalist work, Pfaff, along with like-minded artists Gordon Matta-Clark, Lynda Benglis, and Richard Tuttle, made gutsy, chaotic installations full of color and life. According to Pfaff, installation projects allow her “to plunge into that spacey void and edit the chaos into a dramatic and sensual environment.” Pfaff was awarded a MacArthur Fellowship in 2004.
