Light. Just Light.

↑ Anila Quayyum Agha: Intersections.

Pakistani-American artist Anila Quayyum Agha uses light and cast shadow to transform Rice Gallery into a sacred space of her own making that is open to all. “Intersections” is inspired by Agha’s seminal experience of exclusion as a woman from Mosques, a space of community and creativity, while growing up in Pakistan. The wooden frieze emulates a pattern from the Alhambra, a palace where Islamic and Western discourses met and co-existed in harmony, and serves as a metaphor of union.

On view September 24 – December 6, 2015. Original score by Mark Walley. Visit Learn more about the artist at Learn more about the filmmakers at Film Stills:
