Join Pakistani-American artist Anila Quayyum Agha and Holly Shen, BAM’s Curator of Visual Arts, for a conversation coinciding with Agha’s solo exhibition at Aicon Gallery, Walking with My Mother’s Shadow. Agha will discuss her monumental hanging sculpture All the Flowers are for Me, on view in the BAM Fisher lobby, adjacent to the Wendy’s Subway Reading Room. Originally installed as part of BAM’s 2016 Winter/Spring exhibition Arch of My Eye’s Orbit, curated by Hrag Vartanian, Agha’s installation has been extended after overwhelmingly positive response from BAM audiences.

Leadership support for BAM Visual Art provided by Agnes Gund and Toby Devan Lewis
