‘Floored by Art’ carpet expo @ Aguada Jail

11th January, 2023

Floored by Art’ is a unique carpet exhibit which pays tribute to the master carpet makers of India as well as India’s acclaimed artists. The exposition pays tribute to the master carpet makers of India and India’s acclaimed artists.

The spotlight includes the signature works of eminent contemporary Indian painters like SH Raza, MF Hussain, Ram Kumar, Sujata Bajaj reproduced on the canvas of carpets. Each signature carpet carries a certificate of authentication from the artist. Owning a Hussain or Raza may be out of reach for most pockets, but a signature carpet carrying their replicas may bring you closer to the works of the greats. And, you can admire them on your wall; instead of the floor.

Set against the backdrop of the historic Aguada Jail Complex, the invitees at Floored by Art from all walks of life like architects, business owners, painters and artists, presided the event. This one of a kind expo is curated by Sunil Sethi, Chairman of Fashion Design Council of India. Sunil expressed, “These are limited-edition carpets. I didn’t know Goan artists. Hence, you see the masters. I wanted to be a part of the Aguada history.” Sethi has also been Vice Chairman of The All India Handloom Board, and a recipient of the Lifetime Achievement award (for his outstanding contribution to the carpet industry) by the Export Promotion Council under the Ministry of Textiles

The exhibit is on display at the Aguada Jail Complex, Sinquerim, till January 14, 2023.
