Armory Show : Booth 313

9 - 11 September 2022 
Richard Saltoun Gallery is delighted to present a special stand celebrating the ‘Pattern and Decoration’ movement through the works of Cynthia CarlsonOlga de AmaralLuba KrejciPat LaschRee MortonHessieMiriam Schapiro, and Su Richardson, plus an exceptional work of historical importance by Ida Applebroog.

Between the mid-1970s to the early 1980s, the Pattern & Decoration movement sought to reassert the value of crafts, ornamentation and aesthetic beauty, which were demeaned by the western Minimalist and Conceptualist standards. Including elements of crafts - such as needlepoint and beading - that were traditionally done by women within the domestic sphere, the P&D artists dismantled the hierarchy of fine art over craft, and thereby raised questions about public (male) verses domestic (female) spaces, and fine art versus utilitarian objects.
