Anila Quayyum Agha: Between Light and Shadow opens Oct. 19 at Toledo Museum of Art


TOLEDO: Anila Quayyum Agha: Between Light and Shadow opens to the public Saturday, Oct. 19, 2019 at the Toledo Museum of Art (TMA). The much-anticipated exhibition will transform TMA Galleries 4, 5, and 9 into stunning illuminated spaces. There is a special preview for Museum members Friday, Oct. 18 from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m.


AnilaAgha is a Pakistanti-American artist who creates the awe-inspiring spaces from intricate patterns of light and shadow, evoking the sacred, while also raising questions of exclusion and belonging. She won the two top prizes at ArtPrize, the international art competition held in Grand Rapids, Michigan, in 2014. Her entry, titled Intersections, is the first work to win both the ArtPrize Public Vote and Juried Grand Prizes.


As an interdisciplinary artist, Agha creates artwork that explores global politics, cultural multiplicity, mass media, and social and gender roles in the current cultural and global climate, explained Diane C. Wright, TMA’s senior curator of glass and decorative arts. “This exhibition will offer Museums visitors an immersive, sensory experience,” Wright said. “As one progresses through the exhibition, their movements will modify the projected light and patterned shadows, creating a unique interaction with each visit.”


Agha will speak Saturday, Oct. 19 at 2 p.m. in the Little Theater. She will join Wright for a conversation about her career and the work included in the exhibition. “This is a great opportunity for visitors to hear directly from the artist, to better understand what influences her and what motived her to create these awe-inspiring spaces from intricate patterns of light and shadow,” Wright said.


The exhibition is on view from Saturday, Oct. 19, 2019 through Sunday, Feb. 9, 2020. Tickets for the exhibition are free for Museum members and $12 for nonmembers, with discounts for seniors, college students, military, and youth ages 5 to 17. Children 4 and younger receive free admission. Tickets are on sale now at tickets.toledomuseum.org.


Anila Quayyum Agha: Between Light and Shadow is sponsored by KeyBank, the TMA Ambassadors, the Ohio Arts Council, Lathrop, and Gross Electric with additional support from 2019 Exhibition Program Sponsor ProMedica.
