Located in the Aga Khan Museum's Temporary Exhibition Gallery, Afghanistan My Love (October 8, 2022 – April 10, 2023) highlights Afghanistan as a place of cultural richness, diversity, and deep love. Featuring the work of art collective ArtLords and Afghan-Canadian artist Shaheer Zazai, Afghanistan My Love is a contemporary exhibition that demonstrates how art can be used as a powerful medium for connection during times of adversity. It offers visitors a glimpse into an Afghanistan which is more than a physical place — it is a home, a memory, and an identity.
