This exhibition presents textiles, decorative arts and works on paper that attest to the pluralism of Islam and its expressions. From an Egyptian textile fragment dated to the 1100s to a contemporary woman’s top by Paris-based designer Azzedine Ala├»a, 30 objects offer explorations into migration, diaspora, and exchange. Together they suggest the difficulty of defining arts from a transnational religious viewpoint.
