The presentation of Qureshi's work on The Iris and B. Gerald Cantor Roof Garden signals a new perspective on this space and its potential. Sheena Wagstaff, our chairman of Modern and Contemporary Art, has conceived of this project and publication as the first in a new series that will focus specifically on the significance and meaning of the site. Organized by Associate Curator Ian Alteveer, Qureshi's installation is immersive, using color and pattern to evoke a range of complex associations. The result is stunningly beautiful and deeply resonant.
