RELIGIOUS ART | NEWS OF WEEK

ALPHA OMEGA ARTS
By Gregory & Ernest Disney-Britton
Anila Quayyum Agha's "Intersections," is one of 20 exhibits at North Carolina Museum of Art's "You Are Here: Light, Color, and Sound Experiences " media preview on April 4, 2018.
After this week’s visit, we now have hundreds of reasons to visit North Carolina, but “You Are Here” featuring 15 artists including Anila Quayyum Agha, Bill Viola, and Janet Cardiff is at the top of that list. It’s a massive collection of immersive installations exploring light, color and sound at the North Carolina Museum of Art. Agha’s “Intersections,” Viola’s “The Crossing,” and Cardiff’s Forty Part Motep” are spiritual stand-outs in the show. It’s an often emotional journey, and that is why “You Are Here” in Raleigh, North Carolina is our art news of the week.
