ABOUT THE EVENT
12 pm: a private tour of “Modernisms”, Iranian, Turkish, and Indian Highlights from NYU’s Abby Weed Grey Collection.
Abby Weed Grey was a North American collector who made multiple trips abroad in the 1960s and early 1970s, to explore and collect modern art from across Asia.
The exhibition sheds new light on famed artists such as Parviz Tanavoli, Fahrelnissa Zeid , and M.F. Husain , and also includes the collector’s personal letters, journals, invoices, catalogues, invitations, and photographs from the Abby Weed Grey Papers in the NYU Archives. The archives make visible how these artists drew on their specific heritages while also engaging in global discourses around key issues of modernity.
The tour will be led by Maya Allison, Chief Curator at NYU Abu Dhabi and Founder and Executive Director of The NYUAD Art Gallery
