George Woodman in "Pattern, Crime & Decoration" at Le Consortium Museum

May 16, 2019 through October 20, 2019
Consortium Museum

Jointly curated and presented with MAMCO Geneva, this exhibition considers the achievements of artists associated with Pattern and Decoration in the United States and ways that their work celebrated decorative and non-Western visual motifs. George Woodman was closely connected with the Criss-Cross art movement based in Boulder, Colorado which existed somewhat at the margins of P & D, but his paintings of the period—including Grey Portal (1978) and Untitled (1974) shown here—convey his embrace of color, decoration and beauty despite his rigorous and minimalist approach to the origins of pattern.
