(Exhibition) Modernisms: Iranian, Turkish, and Indian Art, 1960s-1970s

Maqbool Fida Husain, (Indian), Virgin Night, 1964, Oil on canvas, 39 3/4 x 29 1/2 in., Grey Art Gallery, New York University Art Collection Gift of Abby Weed Grey, G1975.158

Modernisms comprises an exhibition and publication that explore aspects of Iranian, Indian, and Turkish art from the 1960s and early ’70s via selected works from the Abby Weed Grey Collection of Modern Asian and Middle Eastern Art at NYU.

Featuring approximately twenty-five to thirty works from each of the three countries, the exhibition sheds light on how Iranian, Turkish, and Indian artists created works that drew on their specific heritages while also engaging in global discourses around key issues of modernity. It is the very first to bring together modern works from Iran, India, and Turkey.

The publication features essays that both further illuminate our concepts of modernism and make a substantial contribution to understanding art made outside the long-dominant North American–Western European axis. Also featured are correspondence, journals, invoices, exhibition brochures, invitations, and photographs from the Abby Weed Grey Papers housed in the NYU Archives, a treasure trove of materials that provides insights into Mrs. Grey’s motivations and aspirations as well as the challenges she faced in amassing an international collection.
