Artist Talk

Bita Ghezelayagh

Aga Khan Centre Gallery presents an exhibition by the internationally renowned Iranian textile artist Bita Ghezelayagh.

Join the artist for a talk about her exhibition, her new works and the Iranian cultural heritage that influences it. This will be followed by a Q&A. Light refreshments will be provided.

Somewhere between an artisan and a conceptual artist, Ghezelayagh uses her individualistic style to add a distinctively modern character to textiles of the past. Her work evokes grand themes of courtship, kingship, communication and glories of war while simultaneously celebrating the humblest units of artistic creation: the stitch, knot and rivet.
