Azra Akšamija​: Mosque Manifesto

  • The Anderson 907 1/2 Franklin Street Richmond, VA (map)

The Anderson is pleased to present “Mosque Manifesto” by artist Azra Akšamija. The exhibition features selected objects and proposals developed in relation to the artist’s 2015 book, Mosque Manifesto: Propositions for Spaces of Coexistence. “Mosque Manifesto” re-conceptualizes the mosque not as a fixed location or architectural type, but rather as a nomadic, educational and performative social space facilitating both religious and secular programs. As such, it can express the spiritual, socio-cultural, and emotional needs of its community while, at the same time, framing a zone for dialogue between Muslims and non-Muslims.
