Stop, Drop, Repeat - The Painted Work of Marlis Saunders

Stop, Drop, Repeat: The Painted Work of Marlis Saunders

Stop, Drop, Repeat is the Design Exchange's first major exhibition on pattern design and this country's first look at the exceptional work by a Canadian Bauhaus pioneer.

The exhibition gathers over a hundred works on paper that reflect the broad range of Saunders' career.

Through these pieces, the exhibition will trace the roots of the Bauhaus school from the early influences of the Arts and Crafts movement and Expressionism, to the design philosophy and international spread of the Bauhaus School.

Themes in the exhibition will centre on the three main stylistic developments in Saunders career: The Bauhaus Style and Abstraction, Aboriginal Influence, and Flora and Fauna.

Each section will explore related moments in art and design history, the work of her contemporaries, the technical aspects of her work, and give visitors the opportunity to develop their own patterns utilizing smart grid technology.
