Drop-In Tour: Mirror Variations and Intersections
July 17, 2018, 1:00 PM-2:00 PM
GRAM presents concurrent solo exhibitions featuring Anila Quayyum Agha (Pakistani-American) and Monir Shahroudy Farmanfarmaian (Iranian), both of whom synthesize Islamic tradition and modern abstraction into objects of great beauty and depth. The two women have immersed themselves in the distinctive geometric forms and designs of traditional Islamic cultures, which are seen in architecture and ornamentation throughout the Islamic world. The docent guide will share stories on both artists and their artwork as you sketch as you explore both exhibitions.
Drop-in tours are free with admission and meet in the museum’s main lobby at 1pm. No registration required.
