Pattern, Crime & Decoration
Through October 20, 2019
Consortium Museum, Dijon, France
Pattern, Crime & Decoration explores the groundbreaking, artist-led American art movement Pattern & Decoration, which started in the mid-1970s and lasted until the mid-1980s. Strongly grounded in feminism, it included many women artists and sought to highlight arts and crafts, which were often dismissed as belonging to the domestic or decorative sphere. In this exhibition artists from the Pattern & Decoration movement are presented alongside American and European artists from the same era whose work shares similar formal concerns including Simon Hantaï.
