Nour Festival of Arts: The Writing of Art Past

Oct 21 to Nov 5, 2016 ,
11:00 AM
- London, United Kingdom

Free Event

The Writing of Art offers a glimpse into contemporary art approaches influenced by traditional arts based on Persian and Arabic script, bringing together the work of Graham Day, Hanieh Delecroix, Parastou Forouhar, Farnaz Jahanbin and Katayoun Rouhi.

Providing a window into the infinitely variable interpretations and articulations of the art of writing, the exhibition highlights the plasticity between word, idea and image, traditionally juxtaposed as discrete systems of the visual and the discursive. On view together for the first time in the contemplative halls of the Ismaili Centre, these works create a moving poetic dialogue that implicitly weaves culture and history with the ineffable and the sublime.

Free. No Booking Required.
