Cynthia Carlson: Sixty Years

Foreword by Marcia E. Vetrocq. Text by Alexandra Schwartz, Anna Katz. Interview by Thomas Mellins.

Cynthia Carlson: Sixty Years

The first retrospective on a fascinating protagonist of the 1970s Pattern & Decoration movement, who defied Minimalist orthodoxy with humorous multimedia explorations of domesticity and ornament

This is the first comprehensive volume on Cynthia Carlson (born 1942), a key artist of the Pattern & Decoration group who responded to Minimalism’s dominance in the 1970s. The work of this group has recently been revisited and reappraised in exhibitions and by art scholarship. A Chicagoan under the influence of the Chicago Imagists, Carlson landed in New York City in 1965 and has exhibited widely (she was included in Lucy Lippard’s seminal 1971 exhibition 26 Contemporary Women Artists at the Aldrich Museum of Contemporary Art). Her interest in the domestic—as a source of shapes and as a realm of familial experiences, chores and memories—intersects with the works of contemporaries ranging from Jennifer Bartlett to Joel Shapiro and Elizabeth Murray. Carlson's utilization of architectural motifs might align at one moment with the vernacular embraced in the buildings of Venturi & Scott Brown and, at another, with the postmodern rehabilitation of Beaux-Arts ornament. Her hand-painted "wallpaper" is considered a significant contribution and influence on contemporary installation art. Carlson’s artistic identity continues to morph: from room-size wallpaper and a life-size gingerbread house to unexpected shaped canvasses, architectural constructions and pet portraits. Whatever she creates, however eccentric, is high-spirited, genial and insightful.

Highly anticipated 'Cynthia Carlson: Sixty Years' is NEW from D.A.P. Publishing

Highly anticipated 'Cynthia Carlson: Sixty Years' is NEW from D.A.P. Publishing

Featured spreads are from new release Cynthia Carlson: Sixty Years, the first comprehensive overview on the fearlessly experimental (and openly humorous) artist most associated with the 1970s Pattern & Decoration movement, but whose work goes way beyond. From braided and woven early paintings to paintings and “wallpaper installations” made with cake-making tools, to a life-sized gingerbread house sculpture, she has refused to be labeled or held to any one style or idea. For example, essayist Anna Katz writes, “By her own admission, Carlson had not set out to make politically feminist work, or even political work. Carlson has averred that ‘issues’ such as ‘feminism and a return to craft’ were misapplied to her work. She’s insisted that her overarching focus was to ‘mess up’ and ‘deliberately confuse’ previously separated categories of decoration and art, yet also did not deny that extruding flowers and curlicues, repetitively, from no more feminized a tool than a cake pastry piping bag to simulate nothing other than wallpaper invariably invites interpretation along feminist lines.” continue to blog
