In this issue we introduce our readers to one of the most interesting museums of Islamic art in the world, the “Museum of Turkish and Islamic Arts” in Istanbul. This treasure-house showcases superb examples of interesting and valuable works of art from practically every period of Islamic history: Umayyad and Abbasid ceramics, Mamluk metalwork, Safavid miniatures and above all, the most important jewels of the art of Ottoman calligraphy.
The article reviewing the exhibition, “Colours of the Oasis: Central Asian Ikats”, at the Textile Museum in Washington D.C. is a real visual treat and takes us into the world of the bold “Silk Road” textile splendours of 19th century. From Istanbul, we present the Sultan Ahmed Mosque; a masterpiece of Ottoman architecture and a “must see” tourist destination. In addition we also introduce our readers to the first mosque in the city of Zagreb, (in Croatia) whose existence and history are known to very few people. In its original form, it was an art association pavilion specifically transformed into a mosque donning three minarets during the Second World War. Since the communist Yugoslav government ordered the mosque closed for ideological reasons as early as 1948, its remains were preserved, moved and may presently be seen in the new Zagreb Mosque’s Museum.
This issue of IAM covers “Calligraffiti at the Museum”, a joint venture between tag artist el Seed and the Museum of Islamic Art in Doha. It also features a number of interviews with artists working within different fields and who are currently making an impact: New Yorker and “Jameel Prize” winner Afruz Amighty, French graffiti artist Matox, British graphic designer Abdulmateen Mohammad and American architect Aatif Sharieff along with a gallery display of ceramic works by Shahida Ahmed. We also include a book review of “The Arts of Islam, Masterpieces from the Khalili Collection”.
We hope that you will enjoy the 312 page issue of Islamic Arts eMagazine.
