Intersections, a powerful interdisciplinary work by leading Pakistani-American artist Anila Quayyum Agha, will go back on view at the Toledo Museum of Art on Feb. 28, 2020. Intersections was one of three patterned-steel sculptures by Agha included in TMA’s recent exhibition Anila Quayyum Agha: Between Light and Shadow. The installation offered a particularly immersive and rewarding experience for visitors of all ages.

Agha is known for creating intricately lit spaces that evoke the sacred, while also exploring issues surrounding exclusion and belonging, global politics, cultural multiplicity, mass media and social and gender roles.

Intersections was the first work to win both the ArtPrize Public Vote and Juried Grand Prize at ArtPrize, the international art competition held in Grand Rapids, Michigan, in 2014.

“We are pleased to provide TMA audiences with the opportunity to reengage with Agha’s inspiring and rigorous work this spring,” said Diane C. Wright, TMA’s senior curator of glass and decorative arts and interim director of curatorial affairs.

The installation is free, no admission required. Intersections will remain on view through May 3, 2020.
