Takeout Tuesdays: Lunchtime Conversations About Art

Online via Zoom

 

Inspiration from Architecture and Myth
Suspended from the ceiling of the museum loggia like a pair of delicate chandeliers, Afruz Amighi's installation My House, My Tomb employs light and shadow to evoke forgotten histories of the Taj Mahal. Docent Pragna Mehta explores the artist’s sculptural diptych of the Taj Mahal and its never-realized companion tomb.
