Exhibition: Pattern and Decoration: Ornament as Promise

Co-organized by Ludwig Forum für Internationale Kunst (Ludwig Forum) and the Museum moderner Kunst Stiftung Ludwig Vienna (mumok), Pattern and Decoration: Ornament as Promise provides a comprehensive survey of the Pattern and Decoration movement (1975–1985) in the United States, which emerged among artists committed to feminist causes. This exhibition features works with wallpaper-like patterns, decorative ornamentation, and aggressively colorful compositions. Optimistic and progressive, Pattern and Decoration questioned traditional notions of art while also broaching larger sociopolitical themes in the global art scene.

This exhibition was previously at Ludwig Forum.
