Joyce Kozloff is considered a major figure in both the Pattern and Decoration and the Feminist art movements of the 1970s, and since the early 1990s, she has utilized mapping as a structure for layering multiple meanings and examining the ways that information is communicated. Her artistic practice aims to fuse widespread cultural traditions, including applied and decorative arts, with an activist temperament. Kozloff has completed 18 public artworks, in the US and abroad. The most recent, a GSA commission, 'Memory and Time,' will be installed at the new federal courthouse in Greenville, SC this summer. Recent exhibitions featuring Kozloff’s work include 'With Pleasure: Pattern and Decoration in American Art 1972-1985,' Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles, CA (2019), traveling to Bard Hessel Museum of Art, Annandale-on-Hudson, NY (2021); 'Less is a Bore: Maximalist Art & Design,' ICA, Boston, MA (2019); 'across boundaries,' Draiflessen Collection, Mettingen (2018); 'Pattern and Decoration: Ornament as Promise,' Ludwig Forum for International Art, Aachen, traveled to MUMOK, Vienna, and Ludwig Museum, Budapest (2018-2019); 'Pattern, Decoration & Crime,' MAMCO, Geneva, traveled to Le Consortium, Dijon (2018-2019), 'Crossing Boundaries: Art/Maps,' Boston Public Library, MA (2018).
