Event description

Description

Join us for this series of lectures linked to the exhibition 'So That You Might Know Each Other': Faith and Culture in Islam.

A dialogue of objects: Implications of Islamic art, Thursday 5 July 2018, 12.30–1.30pm

Sam Bowker, lecturer in art history and visual culture at Charles Sturt University, shares his favourite things from the exhibition to reveal unexpected relationships with contemporary art and design.

Through innovative, audacious, intricate and unusual objects, this lecture will outline some of the complications that situate ‘Islamic’ art as a challenging and global field.

The Inner Apartment: Contemporary Australian Muslim art, Thursday 19 July 2018, 12.30–1.30pm

The Inner Apartment exhibition at the Nishi Gallery, New Acton, explores the fractured beauty of the sacred and the mundane. Featuring works by Shireen Taweel, Hoda Afshar and Leila El Rayes, the exhibition examines the ways in which usually private, spiritual and deeply personal matters of the heart and mind have been turned inside-out and thrust into the public domain. Join curator, Nur Shkembi, and the artists as they discuss their work and the ideas behind the exhibition.
