There are little-known but fascinating stories of pluralism associated with the making, use, and meaning of “Islamic” art objects. Join the Museum's Director of Collections and Public Programs, Dr. Ulrike Al-Khamis, for a talk that goes beyond the perspective of Islamic art scholars to explore and celebrate the fascinating biographies of Islamic art objects.


Dr. Ulrike Al-Khamis is the Director of Collections and Public Programs at the Aga Khan Museum. She has over 20 years of experience as a curator and senior advisor for museum and cultural projects, working with institutions including the National Museums of Scotland and Glasgow. More recently, Dr. Al-Khamis served as Co-Director at the Sharjah Museum of Islamic Civilization, as well as Senior Strategic Advisor to the Sharjah Museums Department in the United Arab Emirates.
