Betty Woodman in "Less is A Bore: Maximalist Art & Design" at ICA Boston

June 26, 2019 through September 22, 2019
ICA Boston

Taking as its starting point the explosion of exuberant artworks made in the late1970s and early 1980s, this exhibition, curated by Jenelle Porter, traces a maximalist impulse and the legacy of Pattern and Decoration to contemporary works in sculpture, painting, ceramic, dance, furniture design, installation and more. Betty Woodman is represented by works spanning her career including the multi-part fabric and ceramic work Window (1980), made while an artist-in-residence at the Fabric Workshop and Museum, and Of Botticelli (2013), a 32-foot long bold and balletic ceramic composition.
