Christopher Moore: Syria in Toronto

SyriaSyrian war-and-peace and the attendant humanitarian disaster are in the headlines. 25.000 Syrians finding new homes in Canada. In response, the Aga Khan Museum in Toronto announces “Syria,” opening in October. It looks like a spectacular display, not avoiding current crises but drawing on the rich historical, artistic, and cultural resources of that ancient country. Exhibit, speakers, concerts, films, events — it’s a lavish and ambitious package.

That’s exactly the kind of substantial, provocative, engaged programming we should expect our major museums to be launching regularly. Kudos to the Aga Khan for stepping up.
