Member Event

MOCA members at the Contributing level and higher are invited to MIX at MOCA, a special event offering exclusive access to the museum and its partners. Join us for a reception and a private walkthrough of With Pleasure: Pattern and Decoration in American Art 1972–1985 led by exhibition curator Anna Katz.

With Pleasure is the first full-scale scholarly survey of the groundbreaking Pattern and Decoration art movement, encompassing works in painting, sculpture, collage, ceramics, installation art, and performance documentation. Covering the years 1972 to 1985 and featuring approximately fifty artists from across the United States, the exhibition examines the Pattern and Decoration movement’s defiant embrace of forms traditionally coded as feminine, domestic, ornamental, or craft-based and thought to be categorically inferior to fine art.
