A free lecture given by William Lawrie - co-director of Lawrie Shabibi gallery in Dubai, will give a brief, but informative outlook of the World of Islamic Art and Architecture. This introductory talk precedes a full course on the subject hosted by Art Experts + will explore the main stylistic and iconographic themes in Islamic art and highlight the diversity of its expressions.
“In this lecture and the subsequent course, I am not seeking a universal answer – that has eluded every scholar. Instead a series of case studies, drawing attention to continuities and transformations, with a focus on symbolic content and iconography” – William Lawrie.
World of Islamic Art and Architecture will take place at A4 Space, Alserkal Avenue, Dubai
