Sanctuary Art Rugs Exhibition


Qaleen in collaboration with FOR-SITE Foundation held Sanctuary — an art rugs exhibition, first of its kind — featuring contemporary rugs which resemble prayer rugs, but transcend religious connotations — in cooperation with Fort Mason Center for Arts & Culture (FMCAC). Installed in FMCAC’s historic Chapel in San Francisco, the rugs by 36 artists from 21 countries featured art rugs about place through highlighting the need for refuge, protection, and sacred ground. Each contemporary rug featured the artists’ diverse backgrounds of ideologies and belief system, while unifying them through the same medium: four-by-six-foot wool rugs woven by Qaleen in Lahore, Pakistan, using traditional materials and hand-knotting techniques.

 

On view were rugs by artists like Ai Weiwei, Tammam Azzam, Hamra Abbas, Diana Al-Hadid, John Akomfrah, Shirazeh Houshiary, Hank Willis Thomas, Alfredo Jaar, and others, laid out on the floor, inviting visitors to remove their shoes, walk, sit, and find a quiet space for reflection.
