The exhibition is not about the hierarchy of taste as it manifests between high and low culture, but rather about the cultural and political manifestation of pattern within craft, sculpture, painting, costume design, film and photography.

About

Criminal Ornamentation is about the political, cultural and social dimensions of the use of pattern in art and craft. The exhibition is not about the hierarchy of taste as it manifests between high and low culture, but rather about the cultural and political manifestation of pattern within craft, sculpture, painting, costume design, film and photography. Criminal Ornamentation celebrates the impolite and unapologetic display of pattern, repetition and colour as freedom from the elitism of good taste, rejoicing the radical deviancy of pattern.
