Toronto’s Aga Khan Museum Creates a Space of Healing With Afghanistan My Love Exhibition
“These works are the voice of the Afghan people—it is what people on the ground are thinking and feeling,” curator Marianne Fenton says. “It’s the sense of relief in seeing your concerns highlighted somewhere that's visible.”
The assemblage of murals, paintings, and multimedia works that form this new exhibition, which runs until April 10, 2023, are symbols of protest and solidarity. They’re a means of filling a cultural gap in a country fractured by war, and to which many Afghan artists no longer have access.
