TWENTIETH TO EXHIBIT A SPECIAL CURATION OF LIMITED EDITION ARTIST-DESIGNED RUGS BY HENZEL STUDIO The Los Angeles summer-long show will feature a selection of bespoke art rugs from contemporary artists, and will debut new collaborative pieces by artists Ashley Bickerton, Olaf Breuning, Sanford Biggers, Carsten Höller, Jonathan Horowitz, Jack Pierson, Tony Oursler, Jwan Yosef and Lawrence Weiner. Los Angeles, Calif. (June 2019) – Twentieth, Los Angeles’ respected contemporary design gallery, is pleased to present HENZEL STUDIO COLLABORATIONS, a collection of limited edition artist-designed rugs designed by some of the most prominent names in contemporary art. Designed in close collaboration with the Swedish luxury rug manufacturer Henzel Studio, the exhibition will unveil rugs by artists Ashley Bickerton, Olaf Breuning, Sanford Biggers, Carsten Höller, Jonathan Horowitz, Jack Pierson, Tony Oursler, Jwan Yosef and Lawrence Weiner. It will will also include collaborations with Helmut Lang, Scott Campbell and The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, as well as introduce a new and separate capsule collection with the designers of Videre Licet. Henzel Studio collaborates directly with prominent contemporary artists to translate their respective practice, whether it be painting, drawings, photographs, collages, reliefs or sculpture, into this the media at hand. Considered works of art in their own right, Henzel Studio uses traditional time-honoured techniques amassed from the most respected artisans in Nepal and India. Free to disregard design movements and related principles and rules, the artists are invited to freely and seamlessly translate their work and artistic ethos into the media at hand, exploring shape, volume, and finishing, where practicality is secondary to concept. This creative brief allows all artists to embrace the outcome as part of their body of work. Examples that mirror this creative approach include Carsten Höller creating an interpretation of his Giant Multiple Mushroom sculptures, Sanford Biggers re-appropriating a water color painting, Jwan Yosef translating his signature masking tape works and Lawrence Weiner developing a unique graphic word composition. Launching on June 20, 2019 as part of the LA Design Festival, the summer-long exhibition will mark the 20th anniversaries of both Henzel Studio and Twentieth and will take place at THE NEW, Twentieth’s neighboring exhibition space that crosses the boundaries of art and design. Gallery details and additional information can be found below. Curated by Joakim Andreasson and designed in close collaboration with Calle Henzel, The Henzel Studio Collaboration program of artist-designed rugs is an unprecedented project that challenges the media of hand-knotted rugs and serves as a study of the boundaries between decorative arts and fine art. “Art rugs have been around for quite some time in various forms, and some of the most prominent artists including Francis Bacon, Louise Bourgeois, Alexander Calder, Robert Indiana, Mike Kelley, Ellsworth Kelly, Fernand Leger, Roy Lichtenstein, Henri Matisse, Joan Miro, Pablo Picasso and Andy Warhol have all turned to the media at some point in their oeuvre. However, rather than look back, we’re looking to encapsulate facets of contemporary art and work with a curated group of artists that simultaneously express their ethos within a broad yet defined scope. Having leading contemporary artists collaborate in this capacity makes Henzel Studio Collaborations an unprecedented program, even though the artisan practices remind us that the possibility has always been there.” – Joakim Andreasson (Curator of Henzel Studio Collaborations) The exhibition will also unveil the first rug of a separate capsule collection designed in collaboration with Videre Licet - the design collaboration between Twentieth’s Stefan Lawrence and artist Daniele Albright. The rug will be one of five unique pieces created based on Videre Licet’s MELTFORMS, a series of glass and metal light sculptures, as an exploration of materiality and luminosity. This exhibition coincides with the 20th anniversary of both Henzel Studio and Twentieth.
