HENZEL STUDIO X LAWRENCE WEINER AT BOCA MUSEUM OF ART IN FLORIDA

HENZEL STUDIO is pleased to announce the release of a carpet designed by LAWRENCE WEINER. Titled “FROM BEFORE AND AFTER”. The artist is the latest to join HENZEL STUDIO’s ongoing program of collaborations with contemporary artists and artist estates curated by Joakim Andreasson and designed in collaboration with Calle Henzel.
LAWRENCE WEINER, one of the central figures in the formation of conceptual art, has over the past five decades investigated forms of display and distribution that challenge traditional assumptions about the nature of the art object. His primary medium has been wall sculptures that consist of painted non descript lettering, with the elements described in his texts serving as material. His carpet features the text “FROM BEFORE AND AFTER”, juxtaposed with graphic elements. The carpet is made and hand knotted (150 knots per sq inch) out of 100% silk. “FROM BEFORE AND AFTER” will be exhibited for the first time at the exhibition “Nomadic Murals” at Boca Raton Museum of Art (April 23 – Oct 21, curated by Kathleen Goncharov), an exhibition of tapestries by contemporary artists that also include Marilyn Minter (HENZEL STUDIO), Kiki Smith, William Kentridge, Alighiero Boetti, Joseph Kosuth, Rosemarie Trockel, Hank Willis Thomas, Nancy Spero, Leon Golub, Bruce Connor, Kehinde Wiley, Louise Bourgeois, Aziz & Cucher and Emilia & Ilya Kabakov.
