Ornament is a crime

The Cité du design and the Museum of modern and contemporary art of Saint-Étienne Métropole (MAMC+) propose Ornament is a crime, an exhibition of the MAMC+ design fund. Through artists, movements and events that marked the period from 1910 to 1970, visitors will discover the evolution of design.

Ornament has long been synonymous with beauty, but artists will reject it at the beginning of the 20th century. The exhibition shows the evolution of art and design through an historical prism.

An exhibition coproduced by two of the main cultural structures of Saint-Étienne.

Ornament is a crime - until January, 6th 2019 at the Cité du design.
