Pattern ID $18.00

A fully illustrated catalogue accompanies the exhibition, PATTERN ID. The 80 page catalog includes essays by Akron Art Museum Curator, Ellen Rudolph, and textile and fashion historian, Cecilia Gunzburger Anderson. Also included is a foreword by Mitchell Kahan, Ph.D, Director and CEO of Akron Art Museum as well as Rachael Blackburn Cozad, director and CEO of the Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art.

Over the last two decades, artists have increasingly turned to pattern and dress as a language with which to communicate who they are and where they come from. The experiences of culture clash, immigration, and multi-ethnicity in our globalized world have driven artists to use this visual language to chart their personal and communal histories. This exhibition, organized by the Akron Art Museum, Ohio, includes works by Mark Bradford, iona rozeal brown, Nick Cave, Willie Cole, Lalla Essaydi, Samuel Fosso, James Gobel, Brian Jungen, Bharti Kher, Takashi Murakami, Grace Ndiritu, Yinka Shonibare MBE, Mickalene Thomas, Aya Uekawa, and Kehinde Wiley.

The exhibition was on view at the Akron Art Museum from January 29-May 9, 2010 and is currently on view at the Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art, January 28-May 8, 2011.
