Scroll: An AAN Foundation Project will be exhibited at Pitzer Art Galleries in California, United States

08 February, 2019

The AAN Foundation Project 'Scroll' I is part of our 'Projects on Paper Series" which was published in the autumn of 2015 in conjunction with the AAN Gandhara Art Space exhibition 'How We Mark The Land' . Scroll I has been touring in the exhibition organised by the Independent Curators International. It has been exhibited at the Zeitz Museum of Contemporary Art in Capetown and the Center for Contemporary Art, Lagos. Its latest stop is the Pitzer Art Galleries in California. The first edition was curated by Aziz Sohail.

About Publishing Against The Grain

Organized by the Independent Curators International (ICI), Publishing Against the Grain provides a space for reading, thinking, and conversing, where slowing down can become a form of intellectual resistance. It encourages discursive public participation, self-reflective investigation, and invites visitors to discover new perspectives while connecting differing and analogous spheres of contemporary art. 

The exhibition was made possible with the generous support from The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, ICI’s Board of Trustees and International Forum. - Text Credits: Pitzer College
