Rotch exhibition: José Luis Argüello, AKPIA Posters (2001-2016)

Retrospective documents 15 years of Aga Khan Program


A retrospective of posters for the Aga Khan Program for Islamic Architecture at MIT, designed by José Luis Argüello, is on display now in Rotch Library.

Sponsored by AKPIA MIT and AKDC@MIT, with an introduction by Professor Nasser Rabbat, this exhibition illustrates José Luis Argüello’s thoughtful and extraordinary posters “that not only visually document the activities of the Aga Khan Program at MIT for the last 15 years, but also reveal the refined sensibilities of their designer and his evolving mastery of the communicative potential of the art and architecture of the Islamic world.”

The exhibition is free and open to the public during library hours.
