Afghan War Rugs: The Modern Art of Central Asia

September 11 – October 2, 2014

Opening reception: Thursday, September 11, 4:30-6:30pm
Annemarie Sawkins, PhD., guest curator’s talk at 5:00pm

Curated by Enrico Mascelloni and Annemarie Sawkins, PhD., this exhibition showcases a selection of Afghan war rugs created between the 1970s and early 2000s. Made mostly by women these rugs reflect the larger history of Afghanistan and respond to both the Soviet and American led invasions of the country. Dispensing with the long tradition of nonfigurative styles these artists began creating pictorial rugs that incorporated references to the matériel of the occupying armies, subsequently reinvigorating this ancient art.
