Wall to Wall: Carpets by Art by Artists studies some of the best contemporary art through the lens of craft: the woven carpet. Featuring 30 artists from across the globe, including Christopher Farr, the exhibition shows this object to be a powerful focus of meaning today, one that cuts across issues of design, art, decor, production and geopolitics. The artist carpet models the interwoven nature of art, design, craft, industry and sociocultural politics today. With range and depth, Wall to Wall reveals how and why artists are advancing contemporary art practice through this ancient yet persistent medium.
