Tawazun | Balance at the Aga Khan Museum for Nuit Blanche 2019

Join Shereen Ladha, Rahim Bhimani, and Anil Mohabir for Nuit Blanche 2019 at the Aga TawazunArtistsKhan Museum on October 5, 2019 where their project “Tawazun | Balance” will premiere!

“Tawazun | Balance” is motivated by the artists’ experiences of being born in Canada and identifying as members of the Islamic (Ismaili) faith. There is a sense of duality when living in the fluid, ever-changing, fast-paced Western world while practicing a religion that is largely bound by structure. “Tawazun | Balance” will reflect on the reconciliation of two seemingly opposing narratives—a reconciliation only possible, in this case, through art. The piece will be interactive and ever-changing, playing on shapes that are created through geometric structures inherent in Islamic design and architecture. Its forms will also be influenced by classical dance, which showcases the fluidity that can exist within a rigid structure.


Nuit Blanche

For one sleepless night, experience Toronto transformed by hundreds of artists and nearly 90 art projects. This year’s program responds to one event-wide curatorial theme of Continuum. The theme follows many paths during the event – set against a backdrop of the ever-present renewal of night into day, a continuum of experience and ideas is brought to light by the participating artists.
