Panel Discussion
Modernisms in National Contexts: Perspectives on Modern Art from Turkey, Iran, and India

In conjunction with the exhibition Modernisms: Iranian, Turkish, and Indian Highlights from NYU's Abby Weed Grey Collection

Speakers Duygu Demir, PhD candidate in the History, Theory, and Criticism of Art and Architecture, Massachusetts Institute of Technology; Sonal Khullar, Associate Professor of Art History, University of Washington; and Hamed Yousefi, filmmaker and PhD student in Art History, Northwestern University, will present their perspectives on artistic modernism in the 1960s and ’70s in Turkey, India, and Iran, respectively. Exploring the political context of modernist art in the period’s global imaginaries, they will examine the circulation of modernist discourses between these regions and the West—and also reveal how such exchanges, at both regional and global levels, produced new forms of modernist art.

Co-sponsored by NYU’s Hagop Kevorkian Center for Near Eastern Studies, Iranian Studies Initiative (ISI-NYU), Ottoman and Turkish Studies Initiative (OTS-NYU), and Grey Art Gallery.
