Katonah Museum of Art presents contemporary legacy of Islamic Art


The Katonah Museum of Art is pleased to present Long, Winding Journeys: Contemporary Art and the Islamic Tradition. This exhibition features a group of thirty-one artists of Middle Eastern and South Asian descent whose work engages the diverse forms of Islamic visual tradition. Long, Winding Journeys is the first exhibition on the subject in an East Coast museum, and with fifty works of art in all media, it is a trailblazing examination of the subject in the United States. Long, Winding Journeys: Contemporary Art and the Islamic Tradition will be on view at the Katonah Museum of Art until June 17, 2018. [More]
