The exhibition includes carpets by internationally renowned artists: Alan Belcher, Walter Dahn, Jirí Georg Dokoupil, Liam Gillick, Emilia and Ilya Kabakov, Joseph Kosuth, Kem Lum, Jonathan Monk, Peter Nagy, Juliāo Sarmento, Rob Scholte, and Rosemarie Trockel. On view from March 22 – June 23, 2017 the exhibit opens with a public reception from 5.00 − 9.30 PM on Wednesday, March 22.
A new series of carpets by Cornelia Lauf for Equator Production, in a project managed by GoldenRuler, Rome (http://goldenruler.eu) is included, in addition to Equator’s roster of artists. A selection of carpets recently shown at the Museum of Contemporary Art Cleveland in the exhibition, Walk, to Wall: Carpets by Artists will be included.
Devoted to producing carpets in limited editions, Equador Production was founded in Brussels by Petra and Ranbir Singh, together with art impresario Reiner Opoku in 1985.
In 2014, after a hiatus, a journey to Nepal, Petra Singh decided to revive the studio in full.
Equator Production collaborates with artists who incorporate their practice into the larger narrative of artistic historical evidence, blurring the domains of art, design and craftsmanship.
By commissioning carpet designs from contemporary international artists and orchestrating the execution and production of designs in limited editions by traditional weavers, Equator Production seeks to fuse both artistic processes, creating a long lost symbiosis between conception and captures the evolution of Equator Production.
