Modernism: Iranian, Turkish, and Indian Highlights

Modernisms: Iranian, Turkish, and Indian Highlights from NYU’s Abby Weed Grey Collection surveys art from three nations where unique and vibrant forms of modernism sprang forth in the 1960s and 1970s. Challenging histories of artistic modernism that too often begin and end in the West, “Modernisms” explores an under-recognized flowering of innovation and risk-taking in art beyond Europe and North America...Organized by New York University’s Grey Art Gallery, Modernisms draws from the collection of curator and patron Abby Weed Grey.
