Aga Khan Museum’s Art exhibit review: Doors Without Keys – The Varsity

Art exhibit review: Doors Without Keys – The VarsityBy Reut Cohen – Excerpt: Each door is different. They are made of different materials, and are shown in different seasons. Some doors are locked; some doors are not. It’s impossible to identify which country each door belongs to, save for stickers with Farsi and Arabic slogans on a few.

What each has in common, however, is that it is abandoned; that seems to be the point. The overdubbed soundtrack of indistinct conversations and children playing force us to imagine a life behind each one. Who lived there? Where did they go? The exhibit’s approach is far more visceral than trying to extract meaning from an abstract painting hung on a white wall.
