Just noticed this exhibition that is closing on Friday at 5 PM.
Solidarity Works: Politics of Cultural Memory
Location: MIT Building 7-338
Recent work by Azra Aksamija, Class of 1922 Career Development
Professor, Department of Architecture and Assistant Professor, Art,
Culture and Technology Program, MIT
Solidarity Works explores how art and architecture can act as vehicles
for community making, both real and imagined, and generate a sense of
solidarity in contexts of conflict and crisis. Critical reflections on
Islamic architecture and the politics of cultural memory are presented
through multiple thematic clusters.
Bridging art, architecture and history, Solidarity Works presents work
in a variety of media, including textile, furniture, architectural
sculpture, video, audio and networked productions. Featured is
Aksamija's prayer space design at the Islamic cemetery in Altach,
Austria, winner of a 2013 Aga Khan Award.
Open to: the general public
This event occurs on weekdays through March 21, 2014.
Sponsor(s): School of Architecture and Planning
