This is NOT a Refuge


Indianapolis, IN

Working in cross-disciplinary fashion with architectural structures and motifs, Pakistan-born, Indianapolis-based artist Anila Quayyum Agha creates structures that meld architecturally specific references to themes of global politics, cultural identity, mass media and social/gender roles. Mixing reflections and shadows with solid forms, Agha’s artwork aspires to be perceptually soothing and conceptually challenging at the same time. Reflecting on the global plight of war refugees, her new work for Kansas City is titled This is NOT a Refuge.
