Renowned Pakistani artist Imran Qureshi has unveiled his installation on the rooftop garden of the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. U2 lead singer and activist Bono met Qureshi to view his work.


On the subject of inspiration about the installation, the miniaturist said, “it’s about life and death. At first sight, it repels you because of the violence, but you find that it's not just blood — it's something else.” He adds, “It's like beauty and hope.”


MediaBistro.com also asked Qureshi and the verse that inspired this specific piece of art, “‘And how many rains must fall before the stains are washed clean?’ This question, posed by [a Pakistani poet]  is at the heart of Imran Qureshi‘s latest work, created for the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s roof garden. ‘This is an open space, and there will be lots of rain, so we’ll see what happens,’” noted the artist.”


The installation, which opens Tuesday, reflects the Pakistani artist's “emotional response to violence occurring across the globe in recent decades,” museum officials further explained in a statement.


 

The roof garden at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, 1000 Fifth Ave. will open to the public on May 14, 2013 and will continue until November 3, 2013.
