Intersections: Anila Quayyum Agha

We went to the Peabody Essex Museum recently to see the Rodin exhibit and found this single room Intersections exhibit:

Intersections: Anila Quayyum Agha

Their website describes it as:

Intersections: Anila Quayyum Agha is an immersive single room installation that bathes the visitor in a geometric array of light and shadow. Inspired by traditional Islamic architectural motifs, Pakistani-American artist Anila Quayyum Agha’s laser-cut steel lantern conjures the design of the Alhambra Palace in Granada, Spain, a historic site of cross-cultural intersection where a thousand years ago Islamic and Western cultures thrived in coexistence. Agha, an internationally renowned, award-winning artist, creates mixed media works that engage topics ranging from global politics and cultural multiplicity, to mass media and gender roles.

Here is a slide show of all of the pictures I took:
