Commissioned by the museum, Pakistani-American multidisciplinary artist Anila Quayyum Agha will create an immersive, site-specific sculptural installation ​and related drawings ​informed by her multicultural experience. Agha’s sculptures are created from intricately cut steel illuminated by a single light source, dramatically filling the room with ornate patterns of light and shadow.

Bridging modern and traditional materials with historic and contemporary meanings, her work weaves together complex themes of global politics, social and gender roles, and mass media while simultaneously creating a contemplative, welcoming space that draws you in.
