Anila Quayyum Agha: Intersections

Anila Quayyum Agha: Intersections from Walley Films on Vimeo.

“Intersections” was 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.

Although this exhibition took place 2 years ago, it is still inspiring to watch this beautiful video to see the artist’s vision and creativity.  Pakistani-American artist Anila Quayyum Agha used light and cast shadow to transform Rice Gallery into a sacred space of her own making that was open to all.

On view September 24 – December 6, 2015. Original score by Mark Walley. Visit RiceGallery.org. Learn more about the artist at AnilaAgha.com. Learn more about the filmmakers at WalleyFilms.com. Film Stills: flic.kr/s/aHskncE5x3
