Reading at the Table Series to feature Anila Agha


Feb. 15, 2017, 11:30am-1:00pm

University Place Conference Center, Room 200

Anila Quayyum Agha, MFA, Herron School of Art and Design

Imagine a single lightbulb inside a cube made of six 6.5 ft.-square panels of wood with intricate laser cutouts and hung from a ceiling. When the light is on, the sculpture floods the room with lace-like shadows resembling architectural motifs found in mosques. That is “Intersections.”

At the 2014 ArtPrize competition held in Grand Rapids, Michigan, Intersections wowed audiences and judges alike. It swept both the public and jury awards at ArtPrize and resulted in prize winnings of $300,000.  Professor Anila Agha’s work has garnered many honors, competitive grants, and was selected for display nationally at the Peabody Essex Museum in Salem, Massachusetts, and internationally at the National Museum of Sculpture in Spain.

Join Dr. Agha to learn more about her vision that resulted in this magnificent piece of art.

The annual Reading at the Table series provides an opportunity for members of the IUPUI community to celebrate published books written by IUPUI faculty or staff. During each luncheon, the featured author/editor will read from his or her work and open the floor to discussion. Seating is limited; registration is encouraged and can be completed on the campus Events Page. Walk-ins will be handled on a first-come, first-served basis—if space is available. Purchase of a buffet-style lunch for $13.00 (dessert and soft drinks not included) is required to attend this event.
