Join us for this Curator's Talk with Lisa Rockford, who will talk about her inspiration and conceptual premise for "Camouflage: Patterns of Disruption" exhibition. Camouflage has been used for self-protection and concealment through the manipulation and disguising of materials, patterns, and coloration. These artists similarly challenge perception, conceptually manipulating the relationship between figure and ground. Complex compositions are achieved through divergent combinations of bold prints, patterns, textures, and maximalist aesthetics.
Their subjects may at first be overlooked amongst visually overwhelming settings, yet rather than try to blend in, they overpower their adverse environments and actively assert an enduring presence, transcending any marginalization.
