UK-based creative organisation Patternity is hosting an exhibition dedicated to one of life’s most striking and engaging patterns – the stripe. Held at the London Newcastle Project Space in East London, Pattern Power – Superstripe is the first in an ongoing series of exhibitions and events exploring the pervasive presence of pattern and its various inspirational qualities.
Viewers are immersed in stripe-centric imagery from a rich archive of research, sourced from the work of established artists and designers and Patternity’s own studio and Instagram photos.
Since 2009, Patternity has drawn together the spheres of art, design, science, health and the environment in a highly curated website. UK art director Anna Murray and textile designer Grace Winteringham co-founded Patternity as a means of documenting their shared aesthetic viewpoint and celebrating patterned imagery from all over the world.
The event includes a series of discussions called Patternitalks, as well as hands-on workshops involving influential UK-based creatives such as fashion designers David David, set designer Fred Butler and gastronomic duo Bompas & Parr.
Pattern Power – Superstripe runs until April 21 2013.
