Izhar Patkin collaborated with the late Kashmiri-American poet, Agha Shahid Ali (1949-2001), on his series of "veil" paintings, transforming Ali's musings on love and loss into visual form. Join us for an intimate reading of ghazal poems popularized by Ali. The reading is co-organized by Agha Iqbal Ali, the poet's brother and University of Massachusetts professor, and Nikhil Melnechuk of Bowery Arts + Science.
