Current and Upcoming Exhibitions:
Zahir & Batin: Rhythms of Being
Fareena Chanda's IAMD Thesis Exhibition
April 10 to 14, 2012
The research project questions the definition and teleology of the term Islamic art while positioning a contemporary practice of art and design within the historical discipline. Specifically, Zahir & Batin: Rhythms of Being explores the concept of zahir (exoteric) and batin (esoteric) in Sufi tradition, utilizing intuition and the body as vehicles for attaining esoteric knowledge. The project engages the concept of the body in Islamic tradition, phenomenology, installation art practices, critical design and time-based media.
