    • Roundtable on Islamic Art


      from Abbasi Program Added 361 0 0

      Although very widely used, the phrase “Islamic art” has been the subject of considerable discussion and negotiation in recent years. In this roundtable, Iftikhar Dadi (Cornell University), Nada Shabout (University of North Texas), and Taraneh Hemami (Artist & Curator) will engage questions that relate the use of the phrase Islamic art to artistic practice on a worldwide scale. Taking seriously both the materiality of objects and installations that constitute art, and intellectual patterns and sociopolitical relations that lead to art’s production, the roundtable aims to move beyond any kind of sterile concern with definitions, and explores how producers, evaluators, buyers, and viewers of art today are likely to interpret the term Islamic art. The discussion will illustrate a diverse set of perspectives that, in turn, will reflect on aesthetics, the relationship between the present and the past, and personal and collective identities in the world today
