Visual Feast: A Pattern and Decoration Exhibition at ACCOLA GRIEFEN GALLERY

July 15, 2012

As a young artist, James Kalm came under the sway of the Pattern & Decorative movement. An “in your face” critique of the macho reductivism of Minimalism P&D reasserted not only painting but the exuberant visual pleasures of design, color, materials and craft. This exhibition includes many of the originators of P&D including: Mary Grigoriadis, Miriam Schapiro, Joyce Kozloff, Robert Kushner and Robert Zakanitch. It also presents current practitioners who are employing the methods and aesthetics of the “Decorative” such as Kira Nam Greene, Susan Happersett and Charles Koegel.
