Join us at deSalle Auditorium on Tuesday, April 23, 2024, at 6pm for a free, public lecture from artist Amna Ashgar. Cranbrook Academy of Art’s 2023-24 Public Lecture Series is free and open to the public in the deSalle Auditorium at Cranbrook Art Museum. Please note the museum’s galleries will be closed, enter through the Cranbrook Academy of Art Library doors.

Amna Asghar’s work looks to the American experience through a multitude of cultural motifs: from her family’s Pakistani popular culture ephemera to Disney movies to Jean-Léon Gérôme’s orientalist paintings, to Hudson River School works, to currents of contemporary political thought. Asghar draws from her own life in the Detroit area where she grew up and now resides, making sophisticated works that mix imagery across cultures, creating conversation between communities.
