Word into Art: Artists of the Modern Middle-East
The British Museum, London, UK
18 May – 2 September 2006
An exhibition celebrating the creativity of Middle Eastern artists by focusing on the way writing has been used in modern art. From traditional Arabic scripts to present day graffiti, artists across the region have found innovative ways of using script. They write verses from the Qur’an, lines of poetry, use texts to highlight their preoccupation with politics, or simply show their delight in the shape of the Arabic letter. It is this rich diversity of approaches that this exhibition seeks to examine.
