Curator’s tours give you rich insight into the stories, meanings, and processes behind the art and artifacts in our exhibitions and Permanent Collection.
From lavish textiles and intricately patterned carpets to colourful paintings, polychrome Iznik wares, and precious inlaid metalwork: watch as Dr. Filiz Çakır Phillip, curator at the Aga Khan Museum, offers insights into the remarkable objects on display in “Arts of the East.”
In fall of 2017, the Ismaili Centre, Toronto, Aga Khan Museum, and Aga Khan Park presented the “Skate Girls of Kabul” outdoor photography installation. Exhibited for the first time in North America, “Skate Girls of Kabul” featured portraits of the fierce and feisty young girls of Skateistan — an award-winning, non-profit organization focused on empowering youth and children through skateboarding and education in Afghanistan, Cambodia, and South Africa. In this video, photographer Jessica Fulford-Dobson and guest curator Marianne Fenton offer their insights on the installation.
