Anila Quayyum Agha - Intersections

Posted inĀ art
Growing up as a woman in Pakistan, artist Anila Quayyum Agha was excluded from mosques, religious centers of community and creativity. It was a seminal experience that greatly influenced her work. Recently, Agha transformed the Rice University Art Gallery into her own sacred space, open to all. With designs inspired by the Alhambra, a palace in Spain, Agha uses light to cast stunning, intricate shadows on the walls and on gallery visitors. In this short from Walley Films, see the incredible installation and hear why the Alhambra served as the perfect metaphor of union. exhibition documentary
