Event Description

Artist Anila Agha will share the stories behind her new works in the exhibition Anila Quayyum Agha: A Beautiful Despair. Fifteen artworks, including two site-specific sculptures, created for the Carter reflect Agha’s response to the loss and historic events we have all experienced over the last year and a half. After sharing the process and meaning of these works, curator Shirley Reece-Hughes will join Agha to discuss her vision for the exhibition. Following their conversation, both speakers will participate in a Q&A. Learn more about Anila Agha.

Masks will be required during the lecture.

Immediately following the talk, Anila Agha will sign copies of her limited-edition artist book A Beautiful Despair: Anila Quayyum Agha.

American Sign Language (ASL) interpretation will be provided during Anila Agha’s talk.
