To support Much Unseen is Also Here, an exhibition exploring the links between works by An-My Lê and Shahzia Sikander, artists who explore the concepts of the monument and monumentality as a means of probing historical narratives, systems of power, and cultural identity. The exhibition reveals connections among the artists’ works and thematic concerns, ranging from climate change and migration to the Western art-historical canon and the embrace of otherness. The project is part of the multi-institution initiative, “Toward a Common Cause: Art, Social Change, and the MacArthur Fellows Program at 40.”
