News India Times, December 23, 2019
The Block Museum of Art at Northwestern University is the first to bring together modern art from India, Iran, Turkey. The goal is to expand Western perspectives of modern art.
“Modernisms: Iranian, Turkish and Indian Highlights from NYU’s Abby Grey Collection” surveys art from three nations where unique and vibrant forms of modernism sprang forth in the 1960s and 70s, notes a Dec. 5, 2019 press release from Northwestern.
“Challenging histories of artistic modernism that too often begin and end in the West, “Modernisms” explores an under-recognized flowering of innovation and risk-taking in art beyond Europe and North America,” the University notes.
