Delve deeper into our IMAGE? The Power of the Visual exhibition and explore how Power was projected visually in Muslim cultures.
From calligraphy and emblems to figural paintings and photographs, learn about the different strategies rulers have used in the past to promote an “image” of themselves and their ideas of what it means to rule and be powerful.
This Insight Tour is led by Museum Director & CEO Dr. Ulrike Al-Khamis.
IMAGE? The Power of the Visual explores image-making over the centuries through the lens of historic and contemporary artworks from diverse Muslim cultures. The exhibition reflects on humanity’s timeless preoccupation with images and explores their capacity to project power, reflect inner spiritual or poetic visions, give expression to ideals held dear, or express key aspects of identity.
