Exhibition: up close and personal

23 March 2021

A show titled Remastered at the Aga Khan Museum (AKM), Toronto, showcases timeless stories in pictorially rich compositions culled from the museums’ holdings of Persian, South Asian and Ottoman Turkish albums. Remastered invites viewers to pause and reflect on the ideologies and ethics that underpin these miniatures. Dr Michael Chagnon, Curator of the AKM says: "Though the illustration highlights characteristics that were important in the era when Nasir al-Din Tusi was writing, many of its messages are still applicable today. We should want people in power to have a well-rounded education, and part of that is knowing how to be a good defender of the realm."
