Art Asia Miami (December 2010)
Launching the art fair's 2nd year in Miami, Ahmady guest curated the momentous exhibition Truly Truthful as part of ART ASIA's new educational initiative. The "Not for sale" exhibition included seminal works on loan from leading galleries by 20 of Asia's best established and emerging artists. While varied in form, concept, and media, all works in the exhibition shared the inclination to contest categorical presentations of truth and reality in the world. Moreover, the show created a platform that reflected the diversity of artists' backgrounds and practice, dispelling the notion that contemporary art from Asia is narrowly focused and comes from a single region.
