Description

By Ian Alteveer, Navina Najat Haidar, and Sheena Wagstaff

Extending and challenging the Islamic art traditions in which he trained, Imran Qureshi incorporates the legacy of twentieth-century abstraction in his investigations into ornamentation, line, and color. From paintings and works on paper that reflect the relationship between Islam and the West to site-specific installations that operate on an architectural scale, the artist examines what connects us across cultures and throughout time. This beautifully illustrated book gives the backdrop for Qureshi's installation at The Metropolitan Museum of Art and discusses the interplay between his vision and the space for which the work was createdparticularly its views of Central Park. An illuminating interview with Qureshi highlights the Mughal miniature tradition that inspires his work as well as the social, political, and aesthetic concerns that inform this remarkable commission.
