Sacred Spaces: Reflections on a Sufi Path
October 22, 2009–April 3, 2010
Imaginative, vibrant, and saturated with the rich colors of South Asia, Samina Quraeshi’s photographs, calligraphic works, and mixed media montages reflected the diversity of Islamic expressions of faith. Her work was a creative response to the experience of pilgrimage to the Sufi shrines in the Indus Valley. The images evoked the music, dance, and acts of faith that animate these sacred spaces.
