THE WRITING OF ART

ISMAILI CENTRE, LONDON
21 OCTOBER–5 NOVEMBER 2016

Khaled Ben Slimane – Graham Day – Hanieh Delecroix – Parastou Forouhar – Farnaz Jahanbin – Katayoun Rouhi

This exhibition offers a glimpse into the many contemporary art approaches influenced by Persian and Arabic calligraphy.

Providing a window into the infinitely variable interpretations and articulations of the word as art, the exhibition highlights the plasticity between word, idea and image, traditionally juxtaposed as discrete systems of the visual and the discursive.
