      Modernisms: Iranian, Turkish, and Indian Highlights from NYU's Abby Weed Grey Collection

      Drawing on its remarkable collection of modern Iranian, Indian, and Turkish art, the Grey Art Gallery at New York University presents "Modernisms: Iranian, Turkish, and Indian Highlights from NYU’s Abby Weed Grey Collection." Featuring approximately thirty to forty artworks from each country, the exhibition examines the artistic practices in Iran, Turkey, and India, from the 1960s and early ’70s via selections from the Abby Weed Grey Collection of Modern Asian and Middle Eastern Art. The first major museum exhibition to bring together modern works from these nations, "Modernisms" sheds new light on how the featured artists created works that drew on their specific heritages while also engaging in global discourses around key issues of modernity. Assembled by Lynn Gumpert, Director of the Grey Art Gallery, this exhibition illuminates our understanding of modern art created outside of the West. "Modernisms" is on view from September 10 through December 7, 2019.
