The IIS is pleased to host the newly established Islamic Art and Material Culture Collective, a joint initiative of the IIS, the ROM, and the Aga Khan Museum. Toronto is home to a vibrant art and culture scene that represents the artistic cultural traditions across the globe. With the Aga Khan Museum, Toronto is now poised to take global leadership in the research on and exhibition of Islamic art as it takes shape across time and space.
The leaders of this new initiative are Ruba Kana’an (Visual Studies, UTM), Ulrike al-Khamis (Director of Collections, Aga Khan Museum), Heba Mostafa (History of Art, UTSG), and Fahmida Suleman (Curator, ROM). The IAMCC is the result of many months of hard work among the four team leaders, and the enthusiasm from the institutions they represent.
This first meeting will be an opportunity for those interested, working, or research in this vast area to share their interests, discuss the direction of the workshop, and consider future collaborations in research, exhibitions, and public engagement broadly.
Dinner will be served.
