MEMBERS ONLY TOUR OF MODERNISMS: IRANIAN, TURKISH, AND INDIAN HIGHLIGHTS at GREY ART GALLERY
23 October 2019 / 5:00 am - 6:00 am
On Wednesday October 23, 2019, CIMA invites members on a private tour of NYU’s Grey Art Gallery.
“Modernisms: Iranian, Turkish, and Indian Highlights from NYU’s Abby Grey Collection” explores art from the 1960s and early ’70s from Iran, Turkey, and India via selections from the unparalleled Abby Weed Grey Collection of Modern Asian and Middle Eastern Art at New York University. Featuring approximately 25 to 35 paintings, sculpture, drawings, and prints from each country, the exhibition will shed light on how Iranian, Turkish, and Indian artists created works that drew on their specific heritages while also engaging in global discourses around key issues of modernity. Illuminating our understanding of art made outside the long-dominant North American–Western European axis, the exhibition also features historic exhibition brochures, invitations, photographs, correspondence, journals, and invoices from the Abby Weed Grey Papers housed in the NYU Archives. “Modernisms” will be accompanied by a fully illustrated catalogue.
Among the artists on view, the work of Parviz Tanavoli, one of Marino Marini’s students, will be of particular interest for those who have already seen CIMA’s annual exhibition centered around the female nudes produced by the Italian sculptor.
Please note: CIMA members will receive an email invitation in our newsletter, via MailChimp to RSVP for this event.
The exhibition will be closing on December 7, so do not miss this opportunity to join an expert-lead tour of the Grey Art Gallery.
