Agha works in a cross disciplinary fashion with mixed media; creating artwork that explores global politics, cultural multiplicity, mass media, and social and gender roles in our current cultural and global milieu. As a result her artwork is conceptually challenging, producing complicated weaves of thought, artistic action and social experience.
