LAWRENCE WEINER, one of the central figures in the formation of conceptual art. Weiner has over thepast 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 nondescript 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), an exhibition of tapestries by contemporary artists. See exhibition here>>
