Description from the Grey Art Gallery:
MODERNISMS: IRANIAN, TURKISH, AND INDIAN HIGHLIGHTS
FROM NYU’S ABBY WEED GREY COLLECTION
Grey Art Gallery, New York University
September 10–December 7, 2019
“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.
