“Beauty & Belief”

What are the physical manifestations of faith? How does what we believe affect the objects that we use in our everyday life?

The IMA’s opening of Beauty & Belief today brings more than 250 works of art to Indianapolis for a survey of Islamic art that spans the globe and sixteen centuries. It’s the first show of its kind in Indianapolis and an important window into a new world for the people of Indianapolis. In between meetings in a busy installation schedule, I sat down with curator Sabiha al Khemir to discuss the themes of the exhibition¬†and she shared some core concepts for visitors to the show. You can check out the series of videos about Beauty & Belief here.

We also have two works of art from our collection in the exhibition, a luminous blue bowl covered with a parade of animals and a bowl fragment with a painted horse and rider.
