Event Description

Anila Quayyum Agha (b. 1965), All the Flowers Are for Me (Red), laser-cut lacquered steel and lightbulb,

Pakistani-American artist Anila Quayyum Agha creates immersive installations by manipulating light. In All the Flowers Are for Me (Red), light emanates from the center of a laser-cut steel cube, enveloping the gallery in intricate shadows that ripple and change as you walk through the space. Inspired by Islamic architectural forms and referencing her experience as a diaspora artist, the geometric and floral patterns cast upon the walls, floor, and ceiling create a sense of belonging through shared experience. This exhibition celebrates the inaugural acquisition made possible by the Alice Bimel Endowment for Asian Art at the Cincinnati Art Museum. Anila Quayyum Agha is the 2017 recipient of The Marjorie Schiele Prize at the Cincinnati Art Museum. The Schiele Prize honors the legacy of Marjorie Schiele, a Cincinnati artist whose generous bequest of the Hanke-Schiele Fund makes this award possible. The prize recognizes the finest works of art and design by living artists.
