Aga Khan Museum celebrates the creativity and artistic contributions of newcomers with season focused on stories of immigration

Season of Immigration will feature 51 visual artists, 15 performances, and 10 speakers, representing more than 50 countries around the world.

Toronto, Canada, 4 March 2020 — The Aga Khan Museum ventures beyond the headlines about surging global migration with a new season celebrating the artistic contributions of immigrants and refugees.

The Museum’s Season of Immigration features three exhibitions that showcase the creativity of migrants and the artistic contributions they are making around the world. Accompanied by a global lineup of performing artists and thought leaders, these cutting-edge shows shine a spotlight on extraordinary individuals who use art and culture to overcome adversity, build lives, and enrich their communities in the face of mass displacement, climate change, and economic upheaval.

“In our era of unprecedented global migration, we at the Aga Khan Museum believe we have a duty to challenge narratives that cast immigrants and refugees as a threat to the integrity our communities,” says Henry S. Kim, the Museum’s Director and CEO. “As residents of Canada, we benefit enormously from welcoming newcomers and the perspectives they bring. By seizing opportunity in defiance of adversity, they embody the best of the human spirit.”

The Museum’s Winter/Spring 2020 season features 51 visual artists, 15 performances, and 10 speakers, representing more than 50 countries worldwide. Many are immigrants or refugees themselves, while others are descendants of recent immigrants. “We are proud to amplify the voices of artists and thinkers with deeply personal connections to migration,” says Dr. Ulrike Al-Khamis, the Museum’s Director of Collections and Public Programs. “Their stories, and the artistic practices they inspire, have much to tell us about how immigration can enhance and enrich society.”

Bringing forward human stories of immigration and migration is part of the Museum’s ongoing efforts to promote understanding between communities and cultures. “We invite visitors to embrace the power of art to build bridges between people of disparate backgrounds and belief systems,” says Kim. “Art, in its most potent forms, instills a heightened understanding of our shared humanity, fosters personal connections, and pierces through the constructed barriers of race, nationality, and ideology.”

Highlights of the Museum's Winter/Spring 2020 programme include:

Performance: Agra Gharana Gayaki: Ustad Waseem Ahmed Khan

Raag-Mala Toronto and the Museum present Pandit Satish Vyas, one of India’s most acclaimed santoor players, and Ustad Waseem Ahmed Khan, a powerful vocalist and descendant of the Agra Gharana musical lineage. Joined by Pandit Ashis Sengupta on tabla and Dr. Vinay Mishra on harmonium, they will perform a program of evening raags — improvisations based on musical scales that serve as the lifeblood of Indian classical music and have no traditional western equivalent.

Fittingly, our theme this week at the #MuseumWithoutWalls is all about connection and collaboration. Feast on art, performances, and talks saluting the rejuvenating power of being together, even when we’re physically apart.
