Pakistan-born, Indianapolis-based artist Anila Quayyum Agha works in a cross-disciplinary fashion with architectural structures and motifs, creating artwork that explores global politics, cultural identity, mass media, and social/gender roles. Using reflections and shadows alongside solid forms, Agha’s artwork is conceptually challenging, producing complicated weavings of visual perception and social experience. Agha holds an MFA from the University of North Texas. Her work Intersections was the 2014 Public Vote Grand Prize at ArtPrize in Grand Rapids, MI, and split the jury award in a tie.
