“Memories of Stone: Places of Prayer, Death and Commemoration in Bosnia and Herzegovina” is conceived as an exhibition of images, texts and textile art that recollect the historic tombstones, cemeteries and mosques in Bosnia and Herzegovina. These places of prayer, death and commemoration, which reflect centuries of shared existence, also constitute the landscape upon which new narratives of life are written. The exhibition features the work of Dr. Amila Buturović (York University, Toronto), Mr. Velibor Božović (Concordia University, Montreal), and Dr. Azra Akšamija (MIT, Cambridge MA). Curated by Dr. Zulfikar Hirji (York University).
Dates: 10 February (opening) – 30 April 2017.
