Now and Ever. Pattern and Decoration

1.Jacob Hashimoto-The Lightning Maze

Now and Ever. Pattern and Decoration
Antonio Colombo Contemporary art. Until November 19, 2022
Among the artists on display: Lucas Beaufort, Jacob Hashimoto, Andy Cruz of House Industries, Barry McGee, Fulvia Mendini and Tarsila Schubert.
Pattern and Decoration began in New York in 1975, not exactly as a movement or a group, but more like one of the most significant reactions to minimalism and conceptual art.  A number of abstract painters of different generations – such as Valerie Jaudon, Joyce Kozloff, Miriam Schapiro – gathered in Manhattan to talk about new decorative trends. What we can take away from this historical account, and observe in this interesting exhibition produced by Galleria Antonio Colombo, is first of all the resurgence of pattern above and beyond a secondary, subordinate and ancillary status.
