Long Winding Journeys: Contemporary Art and the Islamic Tradition

This exhibit focuses on a group of artists of Middle Eastern and South Asian descent whose work engages the diverse forms of Islamic visual tradition, exploring the religion, culture, and socio-political issues of today. The works in the exhibition draw from centuries-old forms—such as calligraphy, miniature painting, geometric patterning, textiles, and architecture—that have come to define historical Islamic art. The artists explore the rich meaning and complex constraints of religious and cultural customs; rituals of spiritual practice; political upheaval and violent conflict; and diaspora’s effect on identity and belonging.
