Event description

Description

Naar, 'vision' and 'seeing' in Arabic, is a key Quranic term that provides acess to understanding the ways of seeing in Islamic cultures. It comprises a complex set of ideas pointing to the intertwined relationship between, on one side, the multiple instruments of seeing - the eye, the mind, and the heart - and on another side, the objects of seeing - the seen, the unseen, and the unseeable.

Naar: Ways of Seeing in Islamic Cultures is a one-day symposium that aims to generate discussion on the Islamic concept of seeing. Presenting international and national scholars include Stephen Hirtenstein (Guest Speaker, Muhyiddin Ibn ‘Arabi Society, Oxford), Virginia Hooker (Emeritus Professor, Australian National University), Samer Akkach (Professor, The University of Adelaide), Stefano Carboni (Director, Art Gallery of Western Australia), James Bennett (Curator, Art Gallery of South Australia), and Rusty Kelty (Associate Curator, Art Gallery of South Australia).

Presented by The University of Adelaide's Centre for Asian and Middle Eastern Architecture (CAMEA) in conjunction with the Art Gallery of South Australia (AGSA). Full program to be released in September, please see www.ilm-in-islam.org for more information.
