    Colorful, commanding, and detailed, the captivating pieces in Social Studies tell histories not taught in classrooms. Layering collaged images and textured paint onto mid-century classroom maps, Joyce Kozloff transposes new perspectives onto archaic world views.

    An original member of the Pattern and Decoration movement, applied and decorative art practices are often the basis for Kozloff’s large-scale public and fine art works. Since the 1990s, she has been using maps and globes to explore issues of social and institutional injustice.
