Anila Quayyum Agha's work will be on view in Between Light and Shadow at the Toledo Museum of Art. Agha will be presenting three gallery-sized installations that create awe-inspiring spaces from intricate patterns of light and shadow, evoking the sacred, while also raising questions of exclusion and belonging. Taking the form of a small house, This is Not a Refuge! 2 provokes conversation about the loss of family and land due to displacement and resettlement. Based on the octahedron and tetrahedron geometric shapes, The Greys in Between is inspired by Islamic architectural motifs found in communal spaces like mosques and historic sites. The show opens October 19 and runs through February 9, 2020.
