This exhibition includes an eclectic mix of artists who explored craft and issues of feminism, found inspiration in the ornamental traditions of non-Western cultures and embraced an expressive type of representational painting that became known as New Realism. In doing so, these artists were directly challenging established artistic conventions. Organized in a loosely thematic fashion, Disorderly Conduct illustrates an array of stylistic and conceptual artistic practices characteristic of this dynamic period.
