Alia Ali, FLOW

November 6 — December 18, 2021

Alia Ali’s new body of work FLOW (2021) is a photographic sculptural series that references intertwining histories, cultural narratives, and creative processes associated with ikat, It draws the viewer’s attention to the highly enigmatic textile, and also questions ikat’s vulnerability to the historical and geopolitical implications of its production. Together with FLOW, we present works from Alia Ali's series INDIGO (2021) which is at once an homage to the complex historical significance of its titular pigment and a treatise on the nature of visual perception, itself.
