Exhibition « Afghanistan, Tisser l’horizon à l’infini » at Chapelle du Méjan, Arles

from October 13th 2023 to January 7th 2024

An unseen look between Afghan and French contemporary artists, between new works and traces of the past, to weave the Afghan history and preserve its breath.

This exhibition is born from the encounter, in 2023, of personalities of Arles, passionate by the art of textile and Afghan culture, with Zolaykha Sherzad who was about to close an exhibition at Guimet – National Asian Arts Museum. A sensible dialogue between the life of bodies, dressed with textile, and the art of weaving in the history of Afghanistan.

Barmak Akram, Pascal Convert, Latif Eshraq, Ferrante Ferranti, Morteza Herati, Zahra Khodadadi, Zolaykha Sherzad, Mohsin Taasha, Naseer Turkmani
and the witnesses of history: Ria Hackin et Marc Riboud
