Manjari Sihare in a tête-à-tête with Imran Qureshi and Ian Altaveer about Qureshi’s Roof Garden Commission at the Metropolitan Museum of Art

New York: In the recent past, we have brought to you news and snippets about Imran Qureshi’s Roof Garden Commission at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. On the eve of the press launch, I had the pleasure of speaking with Imran Qureshi as well as Ian Altaveer, Associate Curator in the Department of Modern and Contemporary Art, at the Metropolitan Museum of Art about this Commission.

 

In conjunction with the installation, the museum has brought out a comprehensive publication, The Roof Garden Commission: Imran Qureshi, which features a preface by Sheena Wagstaff, the Leonard A. Lauder Chairman of the Museum’s Department of Modern and Contemporary Art, and an interview with the artist by Navina Najat Haidar, Curator in the Department of Islamic Art, and Ian Alteveer, Associate Curator in the Department of Modern and Contemporary Art, both of the Metropolitan Museum, exploring Qureshi’s creative process and the artistic traditions that have informed it.
