Curated by Hrag Vartanian

Hyperallergic editor-in-chief and co-founder Hrag Vartanian curates this group show featuring work by Anila Quayyum Agha, Kamrooz Aram, Kameelah Janan Rasheed, and Slavs and Tatars. Reflecting on the cosmopolitan nature of cities and their interplay of light, language, symbols, and networks, The Arch of My Eye’s Orbit (a title derived from a verse by the 14th-century Persian poet Hāfez) thematically points to a connection between architecture and the act of seeing. The exhibition uses the frame of the city and its architecture to explore and uncover the visual and physical space between ancient and modern, past and present.

Exhibition is open to the public during building hours. The Diker Gallery Café is open to the public during BAMcafé hours.
