Wondrous Worlds: Art & Islam Through Time & Place

Catalogue coverThe intercontinental reach of Dar al-Islam, or the Islamic world, today touches all continents. This beautifully illustrated exhibition catalogue takes the most expansive and inclusive vision of how many art practices have historically intersected with Islam and how they continue to do so, discussing a range of interactions between practitioners of many religions over the centuries.

Works illustrated and discussed here were created as recently as 2016 but also as early as the ninth century. The five contexts that frame the discussion of artwork in this catalogue are Elegant Epigraphy: Writing as Art; Internationalism: Now and Then; Hospitality: Fasting, Feasting, and Fun; Architecture and Its Offspring; and Modest Beauty: Dress, Fashion, and Faith. $39.95 hardcover.
