Abbas Akhavan: script for an island
The Fogo Island Gallery presents script for an island, a site-specific exhibition and public installation by Montreal-based artist Abbas Akhavan. Drawing on the languages of theatre, gardens, and sacred and vernacular architecture, Akhavan creates an open-ended site for reflection and engagement that speaks to our desire for rituals and collective mythologies.
