Meet artist Azra Aksamija, in conversation with Jen Mergel, Beal Family Senior Curator of Contemporary Art, for a hands-on look at her art book Mosque Manifesto: Propositions for Spaces of Coexistence currently on view in “Political Intent.” For decades, Aksamija has developed designs that explore how the dialogue inherent in religious heritage can be embraced to foster coexistence among increasingly intersecting cultures. In light of the increasing need for, as she notes, “cultivation of difference over fear of the Other,” how might art provide a response to the rhetoric of fear or incidence of violence? Come join this timely conversation.
