Ornate Activate examines the use of decorative motifs, architectural elements, cursive scripts and other forms of pattern-making by artists to create and imply content. The exhibition also examines the employment of culturally specific motifs as social and/or political commentary, as well as cultural indicators of historical referencing. The goal of the exhibition is to bring together a body of work that demonstrates a current interest by contemporary artists to merge and reclaim decorative and craft elements as meaningful and critical content signifiers.
