ARTFIXdaily will be closed and e-newsletter service suspended until August 9, 2021.

Looking ahead, a dozen new ornate works by the multidisciplinary artist, Anila Quayyum Agha: A Beautiful Despair will open this fall at the Amon Carter Museum of American Art (the Carter). The exhibition debuts the latest evolution of Agha’s luminous lantern-like sculptures—two site-specific installation pieces commissioned by the Carter—alongside a corresponding series of drawings that elevate practices traditionally assigned as female handiwork, such as embroidery.

Responding to the historic events of 2020 and early 2021, Agha employs patterns, materials, and symbols from her Pakistani heritage to create meditative environments for reflection on feelings of loss from the past year that have transcended cultural and geographic boundaries. Anila Quayyum Agha: A Beautiful Despair will be on view September 25, 2021, through January 9, 2022.
