Joyce Kozloff has been an activist in the feminist art movement since 1970. She was a pioneer of the Pattern and Decoration movement of the 1970’s and 80’s and a founding member of the feminist collective Heresies. After a sustained commitment to public art throughout the 1980s and 1990s, she returned to a studio practice that encompasses painting, sculpture, installations, printmaking, and photography. In 2016 Kozloff was commissioned to create a print, Waves II, to commemorate the opening of the Met Breuer. Kozloff is currently working on a commission for the MTA Arts & Design Program. Kozloff’s work is included in public collections such as the Brooklyn Museum of Art, NY; Los Angeles County Museum of Art, CA; Metropolitan Museum of Art, NY; Museum of Modern Art, NY; National Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C.; and Whitney Museum of American Art, NY.
