This exhibition highlights the patterns that are found in architecture and design throughout the Middle East. Artists Dina Abdulkarim, Doris Bittar, and Joyce Dallal explore the regional traditions of pattern through a contemporary lens. The resulting artworks encourage the viewer to question what they think they know about the Middle East, as well as reflect on the traditions of home.
Pattern & Place was adapted from mash, an exhibition curated by LA-based artist and curator Mark Steven Greenfield and shown at SoLA Contemporary in Los Angeles.
