by Nadja Sayej for The Guardian

On 24 February, the Public Art Fund launches an outdoor photo exhibition by the Ethiopian American artist Awol Erizku. On view in over 350 bus shelters in New York and Chicago, the artist shows 13 photos centered around spirituality, which shows still life images of African masks, Egyptian motifs and Islamic symbols, as well as family portraits, candles, flowers and birds, inspired by his daughter, whose name is Iris, as the project is called New Visions for Iris, and runs until June.
