This exhibition is the result of a joint effort between groups in Los Angeles and Afghanistan. After visiting Kabul and Bamiyan in 2014, each of six LA-based artists created an original carpet design, which was then handmade by Afghani weavers. Photos taken by designer Lisa Anne Auerbach throughout the artists’ trip to the Middle East complement the textiles at the Hammer Museum, operated by the University of California, Los Angeles.
