Islamopolitan highlights the universal topic and dialogue between Islam and design, not only from a decorative angle, but from a holistic perspective. The exhibition will feature works by emerging and established UAE based, regional and international designers, whose practices are inspired by Islam as a design subject, rather than religious designation. Themes pertaining to worship, architecture, and behaviors will be reinterpreted and explored, making special focus on Practice, Construction and Etiquette.
