SHAFAQNA – A series of more than 20 artworks highlighting Islamic art in a contemporary way have been brought in from London and are now being exhibited at The Sharjah Museum of Islamic Civilisation.
The artworks are by 10 shortlisted international artists and designers for the Jameel Prize for art inspired by Islamic heritage, which is awarded by London’s Victoria Albert Museum (V&A) in partnership with Art Jameel.
The exhibition, which will run until June 6, is featuring works ranging from Arabic typography and calligraphy to fashion inspired by mosques and palaces of Istanbul, video installations and intricate meditative drawings.
