Discover Islamic Art

A Collection of Islamic Art, by Izzy Mo

It’s time that Muslim artists and Islamic Art, got the serious big up on Ijtema, so here are a few links to that effect.

Discover Islamic Art via the Museum With No Frontiers:

Museum With No Frontiers (MWNF) is an organisation whose ground-breaking and visionary programme aims to establish a vast trans-national museum that presents works of art, architecture and archaeology in the context in which they were created. Inspired by the principle of organising exhibitions without moving the works of art, MWNF is creating through modern technology an exciting new dimension to museums. The visitor is invited to experience a museum not only as a place to admire artefacts on display but also as a gateway to related works of art in other museums, relevant archaeological sites and monuments as well as to thematic visits.

The Victoria & Albert Museum also has an educational microsite dedicated to its own Islamic Art exhibit.

Lastly, but definitely not least-ly, check out the blog of the Islamic Artists Society, which provides regular updates about the work of contemporary Muslim artists, as well as a bevy of links to other sites of interest.

Please feel free to name drop other blogs/websites that deal with this subject, in the comments field, below.
