The Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA) of Cleveland presents a very ambitious exhibition that examines the art of carpets as a vital medium in today’s interdisciplinary culture, simultaneously serving as object, concept and decoration.
Wall to Wall: Carpets by Artists, curated by Cornelia Lauf, presents some of the best creations of international contemporary artists in this field.
The exhibition is organized in 5 categories to permit comparative analysis: oriental, geometric, icon, text and materiality.
The carpets represent a range of different types of collaboration: artist and weaver, artist and designer, artists and producer, artist and business.
